Dean Booty Resigns 

The Very Rev. John E. Booty, dean 
of the School of Theology, has re- 
signed and plans to leave the dean's 
office sometime after the end of the 
academic year. 

Dean Booty submitted his letter 
of resignation to Vice-Chancellor 
Ayres on February 25 and then an- 
nounced his decision to his faculty 
and students. 

In his letter of resignation. Dean 
Booty said: "That I can no longer 
function effectively here does not 
negate my conviction that the 
School of Theology has a fine future 
ahead of it and presently does a 
more than good job of preparing 
priests for the Episcopal Church," 

Vice-Chancellor Ayres said he re- 
gretted very much Dean Booty's 
resignation, citing the dean's "won- 
derful gifts as a scholar, teacher, 

and pastor to his students." He said 
that the heavy load of administra- 
tive duties takes its toll on all semi- 
nary deans, a condition he said he 
intends to change at Sewanee. 

Dean Booty assumed his duties at 
Sewanee in 1982. Previously he had 
been professor of church history at 
the Episcopal Divinity School in 
Cambridge, Massachusetts, and had 
taught at Virginia Theological Sem- 
inary. His service to the Church has 
been rich and varied. He has also 
written numerous books on church 
history, prayer, and spiritual life. 

While at Sewanee, Dean Booty 
has overseen the move of the School 
of Theology from St. Luke's Hall to 
more modern facilities of Hamilton 
Hall and has been instrumental in 
the increase of enrollment from 
about sixty to eighty-two students. 

Hewlett-Mellon Grant 

To Honor Edward McCrady 

Officials of the Andrew W. Mellon 
and the William and Flora Hewlett 
Foundations have announced a 
grant of $150,000 to Sewanee to be 
matched by $450,000 from the Uni- 
versity over the next three years. 
Grant and matching funds will 
establish a $600,000 permanently 
restricted endowment to be known 
as the Edward McCrady Presiden- 
tial Discretionary Fund, income 
from which is to support institu- 
tional renewal, primarily in the 
form of faculty and curricular devel- 
opment. Matching funds must be 
either new, paid-in gifts made spe- 
cifically and permanently for the 
Presidential Discretionary Fund or 
other new contributions designated 
as permanent endowment for this 
fund by the trustees of the Univer- 
sity. Individual University trustees 
have already given $41,624 toward 
this goal. 

Accepting the terms of the grant 
and its challenge, Sewanee's Vice- 
Chancellor and President Robert M. 
Ayres, Jr., stated, "The promise of a 
Presidential Discretionary Fund 
opens! vistas I could never pursue 
with the resources currently avail- 
able to me. The building of educa- 
tion at the close of this century 
demands the readiness and the re- 
sources necessary to meet opportu- 
nity. This Fund will be a pledge 
toward that opportunity." 

Establishing the Fund is an objec- 
tive in Sewanee's $50-million Cen- 
tury II campaign. ThejFund is 

named to honor Sewanee's eleventh 
Vice-Chancellor, Edward McCrady, 
who first came to Sewanee as a 
teacher of biology in 1938. Mc- 
Crady's distinguished career 
brought him international distinc- 
tion as a scientist and respect as an 
educator and college president. 

Vice-Chancellor Ayres concluded, 
"Stewardship of talent and intellect 
were the foremost marks of Ned 
McCrady's abounding energy. This 
Fund to be called by his name opens 
a new vista on our part in the cru- 
cial stewardship of enabling and en- 
livening fine teachers and the 
institution within which they

Tonya Grant Memorializes 
Judge Frank E. Wilson 

Immediately, the grant funds a 
$750,000 professorship which will 
bring to Sewanee a distinguished 
scholar "of sound learning and ex- 
tensive life experience in the com- 
mercial world who can demonstrate 
that structures of pure theory are as 
ineffective as vantages of mere ex- 
perience which lead simply back to 
the past." In addition, the grant, 
along with $200,000 raised by the 
University from other sources, pro- 
vides $250,000 to endow student in- 
ternships in the field of political 

Officials of both the Foundation 
and Sewanee are hopeful that indi- 
viduals believing in the vital impor- 
tance of these internships will make 
gifts to increase their size and effec- 
tiveness. Vice-president for Devel- 
opment Bill Whipple stated, 
"Interested friends and alumni will 
see this internship program as an 
occasion to support practical study 
within the liberal arts context; we 
are most grateful to the Tonya 
Foundation for its initial support." 

Concluding his remarks, Ayres 
said it is his hope the professorship 
will provide "a bridge between the 
study of economics and the study of

Tonya Foundation trustees chose 
to memorialize the late Judge 
Frank W. Wilson of Chattanooga, 
noting that as federal judge in the 
Eastern District of Tennessee he 
served the area which includes Se- 
wanee, Winchester, and 

In naming the chair, Vice-Chan- 
cellor Ayres, remarked, "The Tonya 
trustees believe, and Sewanee con- 
curs, that Judge Wilson embodied 
the ideal of the large life, well lived. 
His manifold interests — not simply 
the law but politics, government, 
and economics — commend him as a 
model for those who will chart the 
course of a professorship in political 
economy at Sewanee." 

In addition to serving the federal 
bench for more than twenty years 
before his death in 1982, Judge Wil- 
son was active in religious, civic, 
and regional affairs.

Sew. ee residents and students 
will ' ng remember the early morn- 
ing hours of February 1 and the 
wors ice storm in recent history 
that followed. 

A storm front that brought heavy 
amounts of snow to portions of west 
and middle Tennessee delivered 
freezing rain and sleet to southern 
portions of the Cumberland Pla- 
teau. The storm left amounts of up 
to nine inches of ice on streets, 
trees, and utility lines, causing haz- 
ardous driving, severe property 
damage, and electric and phone out- 
ages to the majority of Sewanee and 

Vice-Chancellor Robert M. Ayres, 
Jr., summed up the scene on cam- 
pus when he said, "It looked like a 
bomb had hit here." Utility lines 
lay across the streets, broken limbs 
littered yards, and large tree trunks 
were split and felled by the weight 
of the ice. 

Three days of College classes 
were cancelled, a phenomenon that 
many could not remember happen- 
ing ever before. The Seminary and 
Saint AndrewVSewanee School 
cancelled classes for the entire 

Most dormitories remained with- 
out electricity for several days; how- 
ever, most of the residence halls 
had heat and water during the 
storm and its aftermath. The stu- 
dents also stayed warm with hot 
meals daily prepared 
stoves in Gailor. 

Many students waited out the 
power outages inside and found a 
variety of ways to stay busy and 
ward off cabin fever despite the 
weather. Fireplaces in Elliott Hall, 
Tuckaway, Johnson, Phillips, and 
elsewhere provided cozy refuges for 
those who endured the siege. Stu- 
dents played cards and Trivial Pur- 
suit around them, told ghost stories 
next to them, learned to cook in 
them, and some even learned to 
build fires in them for the first 

While many students passed the 
time inside, others ventured out of 
doors for entertainment. Many 
found ice skating on Trezevant 
Lake a smooth way to while away 
the hours; some brave skaters took 
to the ice-covered streets around 
campus. Others enjoyed sledding 
around the hills of the campus on 
inner tubes, sleds, or anything that 
was flat enough to slide. Some sled- 
ders claimed to have started at Can- 
non Hall and glided to the Old 
Hospital. The outdoor activities ap- 
parently worked up big appetities 
for many as the University Market 
quickly sold out of '^junk" food and 
beverages soon after the storm hit. 

A lot of students took to the roads 
and migrated to Chattanooga, At- 
lanta, and the Florida Keys to flee 
the ice and the Mountain. 

As many students tried to enjoy 
the situation and make the best of 
the storm, area residents were 
learning to survive without electric- 
ity and with the help of fireplaces, 

A tree rests on the roof of Johnson Hall. 

Coleman lantern's and stoves, and 
wood heaters. According to the 
Duck River Electric Membership 
Corporation, which serves Sewanee, 
everyone was without electricity at 
one time or another. Some residents 
were without electricity until 
Thursday afternoon, almost six and 
one-half days after the storm began. 

During all the outages, Vice- 
Chancellor Ayres invited members 
of the community to ride out the 
storm in Fulford Hall which had 
heat and water. The University also 
opened its dining hall to members 
of the community for hot meals, and 
according to the food service man- 
ager, Bruce Harper, Gailor fed ap- 
proximately 200 community people 
each day during the worst part of 
the storm. Shelters were set up in 
Cowan and Winchester and at the 
Senior Citizens Center in the Vil- 
lage for residents who needed heat. 
Area churches not only provided 
shelters but also supplied wood to 
those who were caught short. 

As the potential ferocity of the 
storm became apparent, the Univer- 
sity administration initiated some 
emergency plans of its own and sent 
early appeals for assistance. Quick 
action to obtain a special type of 
generator for the water plant meant 
that Sewanee residents and dormi- 
tories were without water for less 
than twenty-four hours. Repair 
crews from other parts of Tennessee 
were brought in to try to restore 
electricity and telephone service 
which had been disrupted by falling 
limbs and trees. Thirty Army Re- 
servists with the 844th Engineering 
Battalion from Chattanooga arrived 
Saturday to help set up generators 
and assist in whatever way needed. 
Air National Guardsmen replaced 
the Army Reservists during the 
week and maintained services in 
case of further troubles. 

Even though people from many 
areas came to assist, the efforts of 
Sewanee residents and students 
were the critical factors in prevent- 
ing a greater disaster. Students 
kept many residents supplied with 

firewood" and made house checks on 
the elderly. Residents with four- 
wheel drive vehicles delivered gro- 
ceries and medicine to those trap- 
ped by the storm. University 
maintenance crews slept in dorm 
lobbies and basements to hand feed 
boilers to keep students warm. The 
Sewanee Volunteer Fire Depart- 
ment made eight calls during the 
week-long siege of ice while being 
manned basically with only one 
crew. The Sewanee Emergency 
Medical Service was also busy 
transporting elderly persons to 
warm places and also answering 
calls for a number of broken bones 
and fractures. The fire department 
and EMS problems were com- 
pounded by near impassable roads 
at certain stages of the storm. Ac- 
cording to the Sewanee Volunteer 
Fire Department and Sewanee 
Emergency Medical Service mar- 
shal, Tim Keith-Lucas, there were 
no serious injuries during the 

Sewanee residents will long re- 
member February 1 and the storm, 
but they will also remember how — 
as a community with help from 
friends — they survived. 

The walk to Fulford Hall from Walsh is blocked by fallen limbs. 

Limbs lie around St. Luke's Chapel.

Student Aid in a 

by Barbara Hall 

In this year of heated debates on the federal defi- 
cit and reauthorization of the educational 
amendments in Congress, with all the resultant 
media coverage and dire predictions of federal 
budget cuts, it is entirely appropriate to look at 
Sewanee's financial aid program— where it has 
been, where it is now, and where it may be in the 


Not many years ago, the earnings on Sewa- 
nee's financial aid endowment — coupled with 
federal funds and other outside sources — were 
ample. In fact, some federal funding went un- 
used and even the endowment earnings were not 
depleted. But that is no longer the case. While 
the earnings on endowed scholarships grow by 
about eight percent a year, institutional funding 
from general college funds has quadrupled. 

The table on this page shows the basic cost of 
education plus the amounts and sources of fund- 
ing for need-based financial aid at Sewanee since 
the 1982-83 academic year. 

What the table illustrates is that while costs 
continue to rise for an education at Sewanee, in- 
stitutional funding for financial aid is rising rap- 
idly, federal funding is gradually dropping off, 
and outside sources are decreasing rapidly. 

And just who axe the recipients of need-based 
financial aid at Sewanee? They are students 
from families who have neither the income nor 
the assets to finance the total cost of a Sewanee 
education. And how do we know they cannot per- 
sonally finance a Sewanee education? We know 
this because they must file a national form list- 
ing income (taxable and non-taxable) and assets. 
This form is evaluated using federally estab- 
lished formulae to determine what a family can 
contribute toward education. (A signed copy of 
the parental 1040 is required by Sewanee's office 
of financial aid to verify all income figures.) If 
the family's contribution toward education is less 
than the student budget (which includes tuition, 
fees, room, board, books, personal expenses and 
travel for the current academic year), the stu- 
dent qualifies for financial assistance. 

Following are some actual examples of stu- 
dents who qualify for need-based financial aid: 

Brian is from a West Coast family of six. Two 
older children are also attending college. Both 
parents work and have before-tax income of 
$58,000. They have no savings and home equity 
of $34,000. Brian has $800 in savings.

Bob is from Mississippi and is the older of two 
children. His father's before-tax income in 
$20,200 and his mother does not work. They 
have very little home equity and about $10,000 
in the bank. Bob has $2,000 in savings.

These students have legitimate Financial 
need — as do about 380 other students at Sewa- 
nee. However, the federal government is seri- 
ously threatening not only to cut federal student 
financial assistance, but also to reallocate re- 
maining aid funds to allow access (not choice) to 
postsecondary education by the neediest stu- 
dents. (Such a move would drastically cut the 
federal funding received by Sewanee students.) 
At the same time, the University cannot con- 
tinue to allocate an increasing percentage of its 
budget (nine percent in 1984-85, twelve percent 
in 1985-86) to financial aid at the expense of 
other programs; nor can it be expected to "pick 
up the slack" if the federal reallocation of funds 
occurs. Both courses of action would be fiscally 
unsound and imprudent. 

The University of the South has a long history 
of providing educational opportunities to quali- ~- 
fied students regardless of their families' finan- 
cial circumstances. For many years we were 
justifiably proud of saying that we are able to 
fund about 90 percent of the need of our stu- 
dents. Given increasing costs and relatively 
static family contributions, the financial need 
demonstrated by our students is growing more 
rapidly than our resources to meet those needs. 
In 1990, what will we be proud of saying with 
regard to meeting the financial need of our

New Look for the Wilkins 

by Latham Davis 

The College of Arts and Sciences began this year 
to award some merit-based scholarships under 
the twenty-two-year old Wilkins Scholarship 
program. The plan is something of a departure 
from the College's traditional practice, since for 
many years Sewanee awarded financial aid to 
academically qualified students exclusively on 
the basis of demonstrated need. Perhaps under- 
standably, therefore, the decision to award a 
small number of scholarships entirely on the ba- 
sis of academic ability without regard to finan- 
cial need has not received an unqualified 
endorsement by the faculty or University 

The shift in the University's position is the re- 
sult largely of what has been happening to al- 
most all colleges and universities as they seek 
the best students. The merit-based scholarships 
are designed to attract the attention of very 
highly qualified students who might not other- 
wise look carefully at what Sewanee offers. 
Many of the colleges and universities with which 
Sewanee competes for students have been offer- 
ing no-need scholarships for years and are pro- 
viding a far greater number of such awards than 
is Sewanee. 

No matter how strongly the University is com- 
mitted to the need-based aid program, no one 
wishes to lose a competitive advantage in the ef- 
fort to attract the finest students to the Moun- 
tain. Thus a modest program has begun and is 
being watched with considerable interest. There 
is no commitment to continue with the plan un- 
less evidence that is being gathered supports it. 
Controversy surrounds the use of merit schol- 
arships, not just at Sewanee but at many of the 
nation's other leading institutions. Leaders of 
these universities and colleges are asking them- 
selves whether merit-based scholarships attract 
the very best students or whether students base 
their decisions more on other criteria such as the 
quality of the academic program, facilities, ex- 
tracurricular activities, and community. They 
wonder if merit scholarships give the best return 
on the investment. Is Sewanee willing to risk its 
traditional principles by even appearing to "pur- 
chase" students? 

Because of the issues involved, W. Brown Pat- 
terson, dean of the College, appointed a commit- 
tee last June to study the Wilkins Scholarship 
program and the problems of no-need scholar- 
ships and to make recommendations. In an in- 
terim report, the committee, chaired by Richard 
O'Connor, assistant professor of anthropology, 
enumerated some philosophical and practical ob- 
jections to merit scholarships but gave its ap- 
proval to continuing the merit scholarship plan 
at least for another year, through 1985-86. Com- 
mittee members are anxious to have solid data 
before making a final judgment. 

As it gathers its 1985 freshman class, the Col- 
lege is extending to approximately twenty-five 
prospective students the opportunity to become 
Wilkins scholars for their four years at Sewanee. 
Recipients of the award are chosen on the basis 
of merit and will receive a minimum award of 
$5,000 a year. Demonstrated financial need will 
increase the award to the full amount of such 
need, but a Wilkins scholar will receive at least 

The selection process requires a scholarship 
application and an essay. Then, on April 7-9 of 
this year, the finalists will be the guests of Sewa- 
nee for activities designed to help them become 
better acquainted with programs and opportuni- 
ties at Sewanee and to aid the Wilkins scholar 
selection committee in making its choices for the 
scholarship awards. 

On its face it may appear that the Wilkins pro- 
gram would require a large outlay of funds for 

merit scholarships, but in fact most of the schol- 
arship funds provided under the program are 
need-based. The ad hoc committee recommended 
that the total budget for merit awards not exceed 
$36,000, which is a very modest amount when 
compared with many other colleges and 

Sewanee belongs to the Southern Consortium 
on College Admissions (a group of twenty private 
colleges and universities which includes Emory, 
Davidson, Washington and Lee, Rhodes, Vander- 
bilt, Rice, and Wake Forest). Of this group Sewa- 
nee was, until last year, the only "hold out" (and 
had been for at least four years) in granting no- 
need scholarships. Sewanee's outlay for no-need 
scholarships is small compared to that at Emory, 
Rhodes (formerly Southwestern at Memphis), 
and several other colleges. 

Despite the actions of other colleges, the com- 
mittee as a whole has not been entirely satisfied 
with the evidence that is usually cited in favor of 
merit-based scholarships. It acknowledges that 
no-need scholarships seem to be valuable in at 
least two ways. 

First, they stimulate interest among students 
who would otherwise assume they could not af- 
ford a private college. Once interested, the stu- 
dents sometimes find that Sewanee's financial 
aid packages make Sewanee affordable. 

Second, the scholarships convince some top 
students to enter Sewanee. These students in 
turn convince other students of like academic 
promise to explore Sewanee and to enroll regard- 
less of whether they become Wilkins scholars. 

In the committee's interim report, Professor 
O'Connor said he was afraid that Sewanee might 
have to raise the value of the scholarships and, 
therefore, increase the total amount budgeted for 
merit awards to really be able to compete for stu- 
dents. This possibility raised another question. 
When does the cost of these few students exceed 
their value to the College? 

A recent study published by Michigan State 
University indicates that higher and higher 
scholarship awards may not be the answer. Ac- 
cording to the study, scholarships based on aca- 
demic merit are valuable in attracting and 
rewarding highly qualified students. However, 
once these awards are available, the students 
who qualify for them tend to make their choices 
based upon the strengths of the college or uni- 
versity, particularly in the academic areas they 
wish to pursue, and upon the personal interest 
taken in them by faculty members and officials 
at the school. Barbara Hall, director of financial 
aid and a member of the committee, said this 
study suggests that a $6,000 scholarship may be 
as valuable as a $12,000 scholarship in attract- 

ing top students. 

The committee's interim report noted that if 
the merit scholarships are intended as advertis- 
ing, "a few modest scholarships (sufficient in size 
and number to stimulate interest) will produce a 
greater return for the money than many large 
scholarships, which will suffer from diminishing 

Some of the data being collected on the Wil- 
kins Scholarships through the admissions office 
would seem to support the effectiveness of even 
modest merit awards. By the February deadline, 
the College had received a total of 235 Wilkins 
applications, which is about 25 percent of the to- 
tal applicant pool and considerably more than 
had been anticipated by the admissions staff. 
The average SAT composite score for the Wilkins 
pool is about 1230, markedly higher than the av- 
erage for entering students this year. 

Ed Wilkes, director of College admissions, said 
that not enough evidence or experience is avail- 
able to judge the success or merits of such schol- 
arships, but the figures are beginning to make 
him optimistic about the program. 

"In the short lifetime of this experiment, the 
quality and quantity of our overall admissions 
pool has increased," he said. 

The ad hoc committee had already taken note 
of the overall improvement in the freshman class 
of 1984, the first year of the merit scholarship 
program. However, Mr. O'Connor said the com- 
mittee was not able to separate the effect of no- 
need scholarships from other changes in admis- 
sions such as an increase in clerical staff, mail- 
ings, and activities involving alumni and 

In his summary, Mr. O'Connor said that until 
there is more information, the committee would 
leave unanswered the question of whether the 
merit-based scholarships are worth what they 
cost Sewanee, both in budgetary and philosophi- 
cal terms. The committee asked that alternative 
methods of attracting top students continue to be 
studied and that the effectiveness of no-need 
scholarships continue to be evaluated with the 
option of eliminating them if the evidence so 

"After all," said O'Connor, "a few schools be- 
gan no-needs out of desperation, and they can 
never be more than a short-term, year-by-year 
solution.... The more our competitors opt for 
short-term, high cost solutions, the better off we 
will be by taking a long-term strategy." 

The majority of the Wilkins Scholarships con- 
tinue to be need-based, and the committee rec- 
ommended that financial aid in this form 
continue to take precedence over no-need schol- 
arships. It also recommended that greater atten- 
tion be given to academic and intellectual 
qualities in the selection process. The broad pur- 
pose of the Wilkins Scholarships was given clear 
focus by the committee in a meeting January 19 
of this year. The committee's report states: 

"Our Wilkins Scholarships brochure gives 
three criteria for selection: academic achieve- 
ment and intellectual promise, leadership ability 
and potential for service, and "qualities of charac- 
ter. Our subcommittee agreed on the importance 
of all three, but felt that we needed to clarify 
priorities. We decided that academic achieve- 
ment and intellectual promise should be given 
the highest priority. In particular, we felt it nec- 
essary to stress that top scholars need not also be 
class leaders. We should be acutely aware that 
candidates with special talents will not always 
be well-rounded individuals precisely because of 
the uniqueness of their talents." The members of 
the committee were agreed that the University 
should seek out future Nobel laureates as well as 
students who might become NCAA scholar- 


The Director 
Visits Israel 

Martha McCrory, director of the Se- 
wanee Summer Music Center, took 
a month-long, mid-year holiday 
over the Christmas break, visiting 
friends and former students. 

Combining business with pleas- 
ure, she enjoyed, first of all, a com- 
prehensive journey throughout 
Israel, including a flight deep into 
the Sinai Peninsula, now a part of 
Egypt. A highlight of the Israeli 
portion of her trip was meeting the 
SSMC violin teacher, Yair Kless 
and his wife, Anat. They enjoyed a 
visit together in Jerusalem and

Later all the students from Israel 
who have attended the Music Cen- 
ter came for a visit. It was a jolly 
reunion, and she met prospective 
members of the Center as well. The 
evening included a call to Alfred 
and Martha Bartles in Stuttgart, 
Germany— the Bartles being former 
faculty members of the Center 
whose daughters have been stu- 
dents in the summer for a number 

On another occasion at a dinner 
in an Arabian restaurant, one of the 
local guests surprised Martha by 
saying that he had spent a year at 
the Sewanee Academv. He is Ass'ad 
Salim Dakkak, A73, a co-owner of 
the Dakkak Tourist Agency, which 
has branch offices in Jerusalem, 
Haifa, and Dallas. The Klesses and 
Mr. Dakkak sent greetings to their 
friends in Sewanee. 

Miss McCrory concluded her holi-

Winterim in Washington 

by Eugenia 

There were people from St. An- 
drews, St. Thomas, St. Francis, and 
St. Olaf. They had come'from Rut- 
gers, Hollins, Southern Methodist, 
Oberlin, Howard, and Oregon. 
There were even people from Bran- 
deis, Marietta, Illinois, Mt. Hol- 
yoke, City College of New York, 
Mills, and, yes, there was even one 
from Sewanee. We had all come 
from forty-nine different states to 
the nation's capital for as many rea- 
sons as there were people present. 
But the two main reasons were to 
participate in "Washington Win- 
terim '85" and to join in what was 
considered to be the grandest and 
certainly the most expensive inau- 
gural celebration in the history of 
the American Presidency. 

"Washington Winterim '85" was 
directed by the Washington Center, 
a nonprofit educational organiza- 
tion which provides symposia and 
internship programs for faculty, 
students, and professional staff of 
colleges and universities. Winterim 
was a workshop-structured, public 
policy symposium. It began on Jan- 
uary 1 and culminated on the 
twenty-first with the first Youth In- 
augural Ball. Over 250 college stu- 
dents, visiting professors, and 
governmental and business profes- 
sionals attended the symposium. 
About two-thirds of the students 
were receiving academic credit for 
their participation in the program. 

There were approximately thirty- 
five hours of lectures, ten hours of 

Williams, C'85 

site visits and briefings, and ample 
time for self-directed activities. I 
found all of the lectures to be en- 
lightening and interesting, espe- 
cially those given by Dorothy 
James, the dean of the School of 
Government and Public Adminis- 
tration at the American University; 
David Gergen, visiting fellow in 
communications at the American 
Enterprise Institute and former di- 
rector of communications for the 
Reagan administration; and Alex- 
ander Ilichev, third secretary at the 
Soviet Embassy. Among the many 
sites we could visit were the office 
of the Voice of America, the U.S. 
Department of State, and the World 

My group, with an interest in po- 
litical journalism, visited the Sen- 
ate radio and television gallery, sat 
in on a State Department press 
briefing, and saw the Washington 
studios for ABC news. We were 
scheduled to meet and talk with 
David Brinkley, but because of the 
bad turn in the weather, Mr. Brink- 
ley was snowed in at his home for 
several days, during which time the 
Inauguratipn grew closer and his 
work filled his schedule. 

One of the lectures I thought was 
extremely interesting and thought- 
provoking was the first lecture 
giv£n by Dorothy James. 

"There has been a change in the 
syntax of leadership since the devel- 
opment of televised national news. 
We (America) became a global vil- 

lage," Dr. James said. She stated 
that television news provides the 
largest number of people the least 
amount of news. We are a nation in 
a hurry, and our news business has 
become like a fast-food franchise. 
The danger, Dr. James stated, is 
that television news is inadequate 
news, and yet it gives people the 
impression they are well informed 
about what is going on in the world 

Dr. James cited that this could 
explain the demise of political par- 
ties. "People used to rely on their 
party for information about candi- 
dates, what was going on in politics, 
and how they should vote; but with 
television news, people think they 
know what's going on and believe 
they can vote based on that 

Another particularly interesting 
lecture was that given by Alex- 
ander Ilichev, third secretary of the 
Soviet Embassy. Mr. Ilichev stated 
that the American press is responsi- 
ble for much of the misinformation 
about the Soviet Union and that his 
country has been portrayed as war- 
mongers unjustly. Mr. Ilichev 
dwelled on the memory of the time 
when the United States and the So- 
viet Union were allies. The Soviets 
only want world peace, Ilichev said, 
but they are not always certain that 
that is what the United States 
wants. When asked about the lack 
of freedom of the press in the Soviet 
Union, Mr. Ilichev responded that 
there is freedom of the press in "my 
country" and that the only real dif- 
ference between Soviet journalists 
and American journalists is that 
"Soviet journalists do not print 

everything they know, while Amer- 
ican journalists print much more 
than they do know." 

Representative William Gray III, 
a Democrat from Pennsylvania, and 
Ambassador Frank Wisner, the dep- 
uty assistant secretary of state on 
African affairs, discussed U. S. in- 
terest in South Africa and how we 
should deal with apartheid. Both 
men agreed that the United States 
does not support apartheid but dif- 
fered on how to effectively aid the 
country in its transition. We also 
heard lectures on arms control, in- 
ternational trade, the President's 
plan for tax simplification, the na- 
tional economy, and the challenge 
of foreign competition. 

The experience as a whole was 
enriching intellectually, personally, 
and spiritually. Being in Washing- 
ton, interacting with hundreds of 
other students and professionals 
and having the opportunity to 
strike out on my own, was an expe- 
rience I will never forget. The Lead- 
ership Forum for Young Americans 
and the Youth Inaugural Ball were 
just two the festivities designed es- 
pecially for us. During the Leader- 
ship Forum Vice-President Bush 
discussed the Republican Party's 
commitment to young America and 
the responsibilities and challenges 
we face as future leaders of

New Zealand 

During his sabbatical leave last 
spring, George Ramseur, professor 
of biology, went to Dunedin, New 
Zealand, to work with Dr. Alan 
Mark at the University of Otago. 
The mountains of Central Otago 
Province have a tussock grassland 
vegetation, which Professor Ram- 
seur wanted to compare with a 
unique southern Appalachian 
type — the grassy bald. He also 
wanted an opportunity to study 
some of the southern hemisphere 
plants and to see as much plant di- 
versity as he could along the way. 
One of the highlights of the visit 
was a ten-day field trip Mr. Ram- 
seur and his wife, Ruth, took with 
Dr. Mark's plant ecology class to 
important vegetation sites around 
the South Island. He enjoyed learn- 
ing about many new plants and 
seeing the wide variety of vegeta- 
tion from the seacoast to the gla- 
ciers of Mount Cook. He also 
became acquainted with the stu- 
dents and realized that they have 
much in common with students in 

the Snowy Mountains of Australia. 
The Blue Mountains are made of 
sandstone formations similar to 
those of the Cumberland Plateau, 
and they are covered by lush euca- 
lyptus forests. The Snowy Mountain 
range varies from dense forests to 
open alpine meadows near the top 
of Mount Kosciusko, the highest 
peak in Australia. 

They stopped briefly in Fiji for a 
view of the wet and dry sites of 
oceanic island vegetation, the coral 
reefs, and a sandy beach. Going to 
California, they drove along Inter- 
state 40 to see the changing scene of 
vegetation across the Southern 
states. On their return, they drove 
up the coast through redwood for- 
ests in various stages of destruction 
and recovery to the Olympic Penin- 
sula. It was nice to compare the 
Olympic rain forests with those at a 
similar latitude in the southern 

Their last major stop to see the 
vegetation was on the western edge 
of the Big Horn Mountains, where 
they visited John McGough, C'71, 
at Shell, Wyoming. They also vis- 
ited another alumnus, Jim Wheeler, 
C'75. He is now a sculptor in Auck- 
land, New Zealand, but maintains a 
strong interest in botany and took 
the Ramseurs to a Kauri forest and 
to see plant succession on a volcanic 
island near Auckland. 


Focus on Pastoral Care 

The Dean's Column: 

Theological Reflection 

by the Very Rev. John E. Booty 

A theological school is many things. It is a place where men and 
women study to learn those things necessary to the functioning of 
the ordained ministry of the church. It is a place where resources 
and programs are provided for the continuing education of clergy 
and laity. And it is a place at which there is gathered a community 
of scholars dedicated to teaching future ordained ministers of the 
church and to designing and providing resources and programs for 
continuing education. But there is more to it than this. The best of 
those teachers composing seminary communities are engaged in the- 
ological reflection. They are scholars who read and think, confront- 
ing the issues of our society in relation to the research and writing 
they do for their particular fields of expertise. Ideally, a theological 
school is a place where specialists in various theological disciplines 
are in daily contact with one another, sharing views, testing ideas, 
generating excitement in themselves and others. Their on-going the- 
ological reflection, research, and writing enrich their teaching and 
increase their worth as servants of the Servant Church. 

Unfortunately few seminaries take seriously this latter aspect of 
the theological school. By increasing the busy-ness of our teachers, 
increasing teaching loads, multiplying committee assignments, ig- 
noring the need for time for reflection, research, and writing, semi- 
nary administrations are weakening their ability to provide the 
kind of learning needed by the ordained and unordained ministers 
in the last decades of the twentieth century. And faculty cannot es- 
cape some of the blame. Too many of our teachers have ceased to do 
serious theological reflection, research, and writing. Too many, for 
fear of losing their jobs, acquiesce too easily to administrative pres- 
sures. Equally serious is the general lack of conversation among 
teachers concerning the matters that concern them most. I beg for- 
giveness as I mention here the penchant among teachers for gossip 
and the avoidance of debate. 

What can be done to encourage the fuller realization of seminary 
as the community of scholars engaged in theological reflection, re- 
search, and writing here at Sewanee? An important signal would be 
given if those providing financial support would increase the volume 
of funds available for sabbatical research and writing, for research 
grants to be used at any time, and for the doing of theological reflec- 
tion, research, and writing at any time, chiefly by assuring that 
there is an adequate faculty at work in this place. 

A good friend of mine, Jay Forrester, professor of management at 
MIT and an Episcopal layman, has criticized the church for its lack 
of attention to long range issues, its preoccupation with immediate 
concerns. "The institution," he wrote, "with the longest time horizon 
is in the best technical position to lead in exploring the nature of the 
social system; the church should establish that distant horizon. 
Long-term values are closely tied to what society is to be one 
hundred, or two hundred, or one thousand years hence. If not the 
church, who is to look that far ahead? But the church is in the pre- 
dicament of undergoing a shortening time horizon when it should be 
turning attention to a horizon beyond that of any other unit in the 
society." I agree. But I doubt that we can do what Forrester rightly 
believes we should be doing, unless our seminaries are composed of 
communities of scholars engaged in theological reflection, research, 
and writing, daring to think into the future on the basis of their 
expert knowledge of the past.

"I'm here to be a priest to the 

So says the Rev. William Patten, 
C'71, special assistant to the dean 
for pastoral care and development 
at the School of Theology. "I'm 
somebody the seminarians can talk 

Not that the students are without 
anyone else to seek pastoral coun- 
seling from, but Bill is one of the 
few official seminary pastors in the 
history of the school. 

Author, musician, pilot, artist, 
former infantryman, father of five, 
politician, home computer buff, and 
priest for thirteen years in the Dio- 
cese of Tennessee, Bill has a rich 
background to draw upon in re- 
sponding to the various responsibil- 
ities as seminary pastor, a role he 
acquired at the beginning of the 
school year. 

Not himself a faculty member nor 
in any way responsible for evaluat- 
ing students, Bill offers students 
the advantage of having a pastor 
who understands the difficulties of 
seminary life. 

Indeed, Bill is not unfamiliar * 
with students' needs and the pres- 
sures and responsibilities involved 
with attending seminary, nor is he 
unfamiliar with the need for a pas- 
tor for seminarians. A graduate of 
Sewanee, Bill says he was intensely 
aware of the absence of a seminary 
pastor who could share in the lives 
of the seminarians. "I thought it 
was part of our training not to have 
a pastor when I was here," he says. 

According to Bill, pastoral care is 
not something the seminarian need 

learn the value of by doing without. 
Nor can it be fully learned from text 

"Pastoral care is a tricky phrase," 
he says. "Everybody tosses it 
around too casually." Pastoral care, 
he insists, is being with someone. 
"It's walking with somebody as a 
friend. You're not a magician, 
you're not a mystic; you're a friend." 

Describing himself simply as an 
"active" person, Bill is one who 
wears many different "hats" at 
present. In addition to his being as- 
sistant to the dean for pastoral care, 
Bill is vicar of Christ Church in 
Alto, which is approximately forty- 
five communicants strong, and is 
also the state representative for the 
school under the Church's "one- per- 
cent" giving plan. 

Despite his hectic schedule, Bill 
still takes a great deal of time to be 
with the seminarians. When he is 
not visiting with individual semi- 
narians and their families at their 
home, Bill can often be found in or 
around Hamilton Hall, although 
seldom is he seen actually in his of- . 
fice there. Instead, he is more likely 
to be seen having a cup of coffee 
with a group of students, helping 
Dean John Booty with some press- 
ing task, or just sitting quielty talk- 
ing with someone — being a friend. 

"It's really a right big commu- 
nity," he says. "The students, wives, 
and children add up to a pretty big 
church." And it is that church that 
Bill wishes to serve as a friend. 

'It's just being a friend," he says 
again. "It's kind of nice having a job 
like that."

Stumping for Sewanee 
Among the Owners 

The Rev. Canon James R. "Knox" 
Brumby, C'48, T'51, is irrepressible, 
somewhat like a snowstorm (albeit 
from Florida), so that everyone on 
the Mountain is happy that this 
man is on Sewanee's side. Few peo- 
ple are working harder for Sewanee 
now than Knox Brumby. That fact 
has added significance when you 
consider that he is traveling, 
preaching, chiding, persuading, and 
generally troubleshooting strictly 
as a volunteer.- 

Mr. Brumby is the acting director 
of church relations, traveling from 
his home in Shell Point, Florida. Al- 
though he has been speaking for the 
entire University (College and Sem- 
inary), much of his efforts have 
been concentrated on getting 
church congregations to make their 
"one-percent" contributions to the 
School of Theology. 

This "one-percent" work began in 
September, and in that time he has 
traveled to four dioceses and scores 
of churches, not exclusively to the 
largest. Nor is he visiting only 
churches where the rectors are Se- 
wanee graduates or where congre- 
gations have been traditionally 
supportive of Sewanee. 

"I firmly believe we should pur- 
sue every congregation, regardless 
of the seminary of the clergy, and 
ask for our rightful support," 
Brumby said. "In many instances, 
where we get the opportunity, we 
win the support of the 

"Of course, priority should be 
given in sequence to the larger par- 
ishes, but none should be omitted if 
possible," he said. 

He recalled three members of the 
clergy in the Central Gulf Coast, all 
loyal to their own seminaries, who 
said they were delighted that they 
would be visited by someone from 
Sewanee, especially considering 
their small congregations. 

While speaking initially to the 
rectors, vicars, or their associates, 
Canon Brumby has sought and 
found opportunities to speak to ves- 
tries, finance committees, adult ed- 
ucation classes, and even informal 
groups of parishioners. He has ac- 
cepted several invitations to preach 
on Sundays, and he has addressed 
the convention of the Diocese of 
Central Florida and several clerical 
meetings. His visits are preceded by 
letters from Dean John E. Booty 
and by telephone calls. 

With these groups, Mr. Brumby 
sought initially to convey informa- 
tion, explaining the programs of the 
University, the exciting develop- 
ments in the School of Theology, 
and the plans of Dean Booty, in- 
cluding plans to use "one percent" 
funds to supplement the University 

His appeal on the grounds that 
the University is owned by these 

parishes works for both "one-per- 
cent" funds and for Sewanee-in-the- 
Budget funds, providing support for 
the entire University, though the 
emphasis is on the newer "one-per- 
cent" program. 

In his way of carrying Sewanee's 
message to these Southern congre- 
gations, Canon Brumby also pro- 
vides a receptive ear to many of 
Sewanee supporters and potential 
supporters. What he has heard re- 
veals a wide variety of prejudices, 
many with very deep roots, which 
must be overcome. 

To one person, Sewanee is cen- 
tered too much on the Sacramental 
life. To others there is not enough 
emphasis on renewal at the Semi- 
nary. Some clergymen remain of- 
fended by University leaders who 
have long since left the scene. 

Overall, however, Mr. Brumby 
said the negative feedback has been 
light compared to the strong posi- 
tive expression of support. Many 
parishes feel close to the Seminary 
because they have had Sewanee 
seminarians doing field work or 
they have had other contacts with 
the University. The efforts of Dean 
Booty are already creating favora- 
ble impressions among the owning 
dioceses and parishes. 

Mr. Brumby is encouraged by the 
verbal commitments and pledges to 
"one-percent" and SITB, which may 
not be realized until 1986 but have 
nontheless been numerous. 

Knox Brumby's work for the Uni- 
versity is a work of love for his 
alma mater, and it fits his personal- 
ity and training almost perfectly. 

He served as full-time canon mis- 
sioner for the Diocese of South Flor- 
ida before its division into 
Southeast and Southwest Florida. 
While chairman of the diocese's de- 
partment of missions and church 
extension, he started five congrega- 
tions and had a hand in starting 
sixteen others. In addition he 
served on the ad hoc committee, 
chaired by Bishop William Folwell, 
which planned the division of the 
diocese. ' 

Mr. Brumby is also a past Uni- 
versity trustee. He presented the 
resolution adopted by the Board of 
Trustees in 1968 authorizing the 
admission of women to the Univer- 
sity as degree-seeking students. 

Currently, while continuing to 
"supply" at parishes, missions, and 
Florida State University, he oper- 
ates a charter service on his thirty- 
three foot sailboat. He is also a ma- 
rine surveyor. He sold the motel he 
owned for eight years and obtained 
a stockbroker's license, and he is 
about to begin training with a ma- 
jor fund-raising firm in Florida. 

Traveling, speaking, and promot- 
ing come almost naturally to Knox 
Brumby. When such work is for Se- 
wanee, the pleasure is tripled. 

Canon Knox Brumby, right, meets during his travels with the Rev. 
Robert Abstein, T'65, rector of St. John's Church in Tallahassee, Florida, 
and president of the Seminary's Alumni Council. 

Christian Vocation 

John de Beer, director of educa- 
tional design for the Bairnwick 
Center, and Patricia O'Connell Kil- 
len, a member of the faculty at the 
School of Theology, began a joint 
project on the theology of Christian 
vocation in the fall of 1984. 
' Comparing contemporary writing 
on the theology of ministry with the 
results of a study of the effects of 
the Education for Ministry program 
on participants, the purpose of the 
project is to articulate a theology of 
Christian vocation that correlates 
the expertise of lay people today 

with the wisdom of Scripture and 
tradition on the call to live a Chris- 
tian life. The themes for the project 
center around a metaphor: "to be a 
point of God's loving presence in the 

The project is a joint venture of 
the extension and residential divi- 
sions of the School of Theology. It 
represents Dean Booty's intention 
to have the School regularly spon- 
sor research and writing projects of 
value to the education of £ 
ans and laity for mission and : 
try in the Church.

Seminary Worship: 
Tradition and Community 

by Christopher Bryan 

"The peace of the Lord be always 
with you!" says the priest. 

"And also with you!" we reply. 

Hugs and handshakes. Smiles 
and a few kisses. A gentle disorder, 
gradually resolving and focusing on 
bread and wine, the Messiah with 
his people, holiness reclaimed for 
space and time. Sharing the peace 
and celebrating the Lord's Supper— 
the former regarded by many as 
very much a mark of "new" prayer 
books, the latter visibly central to 
the worship of the Church from her 
earliest days: yet both, if the truth 
be admitted, marks of Christian ad- 
oration from the beginning as even 
the insults of pagans testified. In 
this ancient tradition, then, the 
seminary prays. 

Of course we have said nothing so 
far that should not also be said of 
other Christian groups on the 
Mountain— All Saints' and Otey, St. 
Mary's and the Roman Catholic 
parish. And it is right to begin so, 
for if seminary worship were not 
first worship as part of the Church, 
it would be nothing — or, at least, 
nothing that could be called "Angli- 
can" or "Christian." And yet — and 
this is in no way to deny the special 
gifts and commitments of those oth- 
ers — and yet the seminary commu- 
nity has also its particularity: at 
this time and in this place, where so 
many are engaged in painful or joy- 
ful changes of plans, lives, and am- 
bition, so many are struggling with 
new learnings, dangers, and possi- 
bilities, inevitably those tensions 
and questions find their expression 
in the seminary's worship — inevita- 
bly and properly, for if worship did 
not involve and express the commu- 
nity's life, it would, again, be 

The seminary chapel itself — a 
temporary building already too 
small — is starkly modern: austere. 
Yet at its center, rich signs of a re- 
mote history and a promised future: 
the Scriptures and the Table, re- 
minders of creation and covenant, 
judgment and salvation, the prof- 
fered sacrifice of Isaac, and the 

Cross itself. To be a Christian is to 
be part of an ancient people: yet 
seminarians, in a special way, must 
struggle with that antiquity, con- 
sidering how, as priests, they are to 
be faithful to it, and to God, in the 
twentieth century. 

So, against this background and, 
of course, against the ongoingness 
of life itself—local events and world 
developments, ice storms, school 
holidays, and nuclear threats — the 
seminary engages in Anglican wor- 
ship. Which means (to be exact) the 
constant daily recitation of Morning 
and Evening Prayer, and regular 
celebration of the Lord's Supper. Of 
the Lord's Supper we have already 
said something. To that other daily 
recitation (the "office" — or "duty" — 
as it is often called), all Anglican 
priests are committed from the mo- 
ment of ordination, and most take 
on the discipline while they are still 
preparing for priesthood. By it, the 
priest is obliged to be constantly, 
and in an orderly fashion, reading 
and re-reading virtually the whole 
Bible: the Old Testament once 
every two years, the New Testa- 
ment twice, and the Psalter sixteen 
times. The ordered structures of 
prayer and reading are a constant 
reminder that the priest never 
prays alone: throughout diocese and 
province every other priest (not 
being let or hindered) will be using* 
the same prayers and the same 
readings on the same day. In the 
seminary chapel, certainly not all 
the seminarians will be gathered 
for the office on any given occasion. 
Sometimes there will only be a few. 
Others will be saying the prayers 
alone or with their families. But the 
public recitation by some is a con- 
stant reminder of the commitment 
by all. 

The seminary worship is, of 
course, public worship. Anyone is 
welcome to join it, as is true of all 
the Christian worship communities 
on the Mountain. There are usually 
present one or two undergraduates 
from the College of Arts and Sci- 
ences, and other members of the Se- 
ity. By them, the

seminary is enriched. 

If one were a newcomer to Chris- 
tianity (or to Anglicanism), I sup- 
pose some of the seminary worship 
might be puzzling. The music (for 
there is a lot of music) is sometimes 
strange or difficult to sing. Parts of 
the Psalms and the Scriptures are 
hard to understand. I would advise 
anyone with such difficulties simply 
not to worry: just to come. The 
Church at worship does not pretend 
to offer to God what is easy, only 
what is best. Remember you are en- 
tering into a conversation between 
God and humanity that has been 
going on for thousands of years. It 

may well be a while before you un- 
derstand it. In the nature of things, 
perhaps none of us should ever ex- 
pect to understand all of it. It is per- 
fectly appropriate to begin by 
listening. One of the most ancient 
worshipping texts in the Bible 
starts, in Hebrew, with just that ex- 
hortation. Shema! — which means,

The Century II campaign was lifted 
to the $40.2-million level this win- 
ter thanks to some major gifts and 
the growing broad support of Uni- 
versity alumni. 

General chairman Allan C. King, 
C'51, of Houston said he is confident 
that the campaign goal of $50 mil- 
lion can be reached by the end of 

Campaign planners are pleased 
with the response to efforts to raise 
$1 million to endow a chair for the 
Alumni Distinguished University 
Professor. Alumni are also respond- 
ing generously to two scholarship 
funds established last year to honor 
Robert S. Lancaster, professor 
emeritus, and Lon S. Varnell, head 
basketball coach from 1948-1970, 
and another scholarship fund in 
memory of coach Shirley Inman 

Church support in the owning 
dioceses is being sought through the 
funding of $l-million diocesan 
chairs in both the School of Theol- 
ogy and the College of Arts and 

Manual on 


Congregations of the Episcopal 
Church have begun utilizing a re- 
cently published book entitled Stew- 
ardship Program Manual: Prepared 
for the Episcopal Church by Wil- 
liam U, Whipple, the University's 
vice-president for development. 

The manual provides a compre- 
hensive program sensitive to the 
use of stewardship in fulfilling the 
mission of the Church. As it relates 
giving to Christian living it also 
makes available a complete offering 
of practical material such as sample 
letters and a program for a covered 
dish supper. 

Mr. Whipple spent more than 
twenty years as a stewardship con- 
sultant to parishes, dioceses, and 
church-related institutions. He 
headed his own consulting firm, 
serving churches exclusively, and 
has conducted clergy stewardship 
conferences and many conferences 
for laymen. Persons wishing further 
information about the manual may

Financial support that comes to Se-

of the Episcopal Church continues 
to grow and contribute significantly 
to the overall health of the 

Congregations are able to make 
gifts to Sewanee in several ways. 
Sewanee-in-the-Budget is the par- 
ish giving program designed espe- 
cially to provide University- wide 
support. The new one-percent plan 
for theological education, adopted 
by the 1982 General Convention, 
provides special support for the 
School of Theology, as does the The- 
ological Education Offering still 
made by many individual parish- 
ioners through their churches. 

The list that follows is the list of 
parishes and missions that gave to 
Sewanee during 1984. Those 
marked with an asterisk have been 
designated Honor Roll Parishes, for 
they have contributed a dollar or 
more per communicant. Those con- 
gregations are given special recog-

Two Retire 

Paul Waggoner retired in January 
after serving for twenty-four years 
with the Sewanee Police Depart- 
ment, ten of those years as chief of 

He came to Sewanee in 1960 to 
serve under Chief Hayden McBee 
and succeeded McBee as chief in 

At his retirement home and farm 
in Winchester, Chief Waggoner re- 
called how life as chief in a campus 
community is marked by both the 
unusual and the mundane. Never- 
theless, "Chief was appreciated for 
the crafty detective work that was 
occasionally required and his abid-

After forty years of service to 
Sewanee, Ward Goodman has 
retired as supervisor of grounds. 

He also served as dairy farm 
manager before being named build- 
ings and grounds keeper in 1959. 
He became supervisor of grounds in 
1964. Mr. Goodman was a familiar 
figure on the campus, planting and 
caring for trees and shrubs, but he 
remarked that one of the most tir- 
ing jobs he can remember was mov- 
ing all the books from Convocation 
Hall upon the completion of duPont

Swimmers Stir Up Victories 

The men's swim team accomplished 
something that had never been ac- 
complished before by a Sewanee 
swim team — an undefeated regular 
season. The Tigers finished their 
year with a perfect 6-0 record and a 
fourth place finish in the Liberal 
Arts Swimming and Diving Invita- 
tional. The women's swim team fin- 
ished its regular season with a 4-2 
mark. The women placed second in 
the Women's Intercollegiate Ath- 
letic Conference Championship and 
fourth in the Liberal Arts 

The men, on their way to an un- 
defeated season, were winners of six 
dual meets against strong Division 
I colleges and placed first in the 
Centre Invitational Meet, out-dist- 
ancing five other teams for the title. 
Sewanee has four men's swim team 
members who may advance to the 
nationals, according to coach Cliff 
Afton. Possible nationals competi- 
tors are David Lawrence in the but- 
terfly, diver Taylor French, 
freestyle sprinter Rob Johnson, and 
Brian Hacker in the backstroke. 

Women's Basketball 

The women's basketball team fin- 
ished the year with an overall re- 
cord of 13-6, and concluded its 
conference schedule with a 4-2 re- 
cord. The Tigers' strong conference 
record left them in second place be- 
hind Fisk in the Women's Intercol- 
legiate Athletic Conference. 

The women were led this year by 
sophomore Kim Valek, C'87, and 
junior Susy Steele, C'86. Valek led 
the team in both scoring and re- 
bounding with an eighteen-point 
average per game and an average of 
ten rebounds. Steele was the second 
leading scorer with a seventeen- 
point average. 

Women's basketball coach Nancy 
Ladd said she was "pretty pleased 
with the season. Considering the 
lack of depth, we played well 

ie stiff competition," she 

Men's Basketball 

The men's basketball team ended 

its year with a 13-12 record and a 
third-place finish in the College 
Athletic Conference with a 6-4 

The Tigers were 8-3 at home and 
pulled out five victories on the road, 
including a victory over Division II 
Morehouse in Atlanta. In the con- 
ference, the Tigers finished third 
after losing to Earlham 64-59 in a 
game that decided the second and 
third place spots. 

By the end of the season, forward 
Jim Startz, C'85, had become the 
Tiger's second career leading scorer 
with 1,461 points, only nine shy of 
record holder Blane Brooks', C*83, 
1,470. Startz led the team in scoring 
throughout the season with an av- 
erage of twenty points per game, 
and was also the team's leading re- 
bounder. Guard Ellis Simmons, 
C'86, was the team's second leading 
scorer for the Tigers, averaging 
thirteen points a game. According 
to coach Bobby Dwyer, Startz is ex- 
pected to be a repeater for All-Con- 
ference and All-District honors 
again this year. 

Overall, Dwyer said that the Ti- 
gers had a "pretty good year." 


The Sewanee wrestling team fin- 
ished its season with a dual-meet 
record of 2-4, with one Sewanee 
wrestler placing in the NCAA Divi- 
sion m Midwest Regional 

The wrestlers also gained a 
fourth place in the Washington and 
Lee Invitational, with strong per- 
formances from Bartley Loftin, 
C88, Brian Masters, C'86, Rob 
McGehee, C'86, and David Lee, 

Freshman Bartley Loftin, placed 
third in the Division DI Midwest 
Regional Tournament and finished 
his first year with a 9-6 record. Lee, 
C'86, also made a strong showing in 
the tournament with a 2-2 record 
and finished the year with a 8-6 ,„

CAC Spring Festival 

The College Athletic Conference Spring Sports Festival will be held 
in Sewanee May 9-11, with competition in four varsity sports among 
the conference's six colleges. 

The six colleges in the CAC will send teams to compete in track 
and field, golf, baseball, and tennis. The baseball tournament will be 
in a round-robin format with the other titles determined on a points 

The CAC Spring Sports Festival is an annual event which is ro- 
tated yearly to the campuses of the conference members. 

Bill Huyck, Sewanee athletic director, said, "This is a unique op- 
portunity for us to host such an event and to have such a great 
group of athletes together in one spot to compete." 

Tiger Track 
Gets Warm 

The new all-weather track has been 
completed and according to track 
coach Cliff Afton, "is the best thing 
that could have happened for track 
at Sewanee." 

Afton has found an increased 
number of student-athletes eager 
for the upcoming season and re- 
newed enthusiasm among the re- 
turning lettermen. This new track 
facility includes a steeplechase pit, 
two long-jump runways, two pole- 
vault runways, a large high-jump 
pad, and a finish line in front of the 
stands for better spectator viewing. 

With this new facility, Afton ex- 
pects an exciting season for the 
University's track programs. Re- 
turning standouts from last season's 
teams include Mark Vandiver. C'86, 
an all-conference shot putter, and 
all-conference performer, Virginia 
Brown, C'87, who is hoping to re- 
peat her triple victory in the dis- 
tance events at last year's Women's 
Intercollegiate Athletic Conference 

Pole vaulter Steve Shankle, C'87, 
high jumper John Lemos, C'86, and 
steeplechaser Robert Black, C'87, 
return to the track this season, 
along with Brooks Corzine, C'87, 
who has returned from a leave of 
absence and is expected to take up 
where he left off as one of the best 
decathletes in Division III. 

This year the University will host 
an open decat hlon/pentathlon meet 
March 29-30, the Sewanee Invita- 
tional on April 20, and the College 
Athletic Conference Championships 
on May 10-11. 

Women's Soccer 

Women's soccer coach Peter Haley 
feels that if all goes well this sea- 
son, there should be no reason that 
they can't improve on their season 
best record of 8-3-2 of last spring. 

"I've never been so optimistic 
about a team or upcoming season as 
I have with our women's team this 
spring. There hasn't been a team 

program began three years ago," 
said Haley. The reason for his opti- 
mism is the returning of seven 
starters', all now sophomores, who 
accounted for thirty of last year's 
record- breaking thirty-five goals, 
plus the return of keeper, Nancy 
Brim, C'86, who led the team to five 
shutouts, which is a school record. 

Two freshmen, Lainey Collins, 
C'88, imidfield) and Anne Robison, 
C'88, (keeper), will play key roles 
this season and offer additional 
strength in those two positions this 
spring; however, Haley admits that 
it is the sophomores that are the 
nucleus of the team. Jennifer Boyd, 
C'87, Tucker Deaton, C'87, and 
Marcella Taylor, C'87, supply the 
firepower up front, and Fran Stan- 
ley, C'87, will be one of the toughest 
and most technically skilled players 
on the team in the back position, ac- 

Armando Basarrate, C'86, positions himself to pin his opponent. (Photo: Lyn Hutchinson) 

cording to Haley. Heidi Barker, 
C'85, will continue to be the team's 
mainstay up front throughout the 

The women's soccer team opens 
its 1985 season on the road in Tus- 
caloosa, Alabama, March 2-3. 


The Sewanee Tigers baseball team, 
coming from a 15-6 record and a 
second place finish in the confer- 
ence last year, is hoping to improve 
its record and standings this spring. 

Losing only one starter to gradua- 
tion, the Tigers anticipate being 
quicker, and they will add some 
new players to the experienced line- 
up from last year. 

Returners like Mark Kent, C'87, 
Phil Savage, C'87 (who hit .477 last 
year), John Laurenzo, C'85, Hank 
Hopping, C'85, Tommy Black, C'86, 
Bobby Morales, C'87, and Matt 
Wedding, C'85, will be back along 
with a host of newcomers. 

According to coach Dewey War- 
ren, if the Sewanee pitching comes 
through, the Tigers will be a much 
stronger and more exciting ball 

Men's Tennis 

Men's tennis coach, Norm Kalkhoff, 
believes that this year's team is 
stronger than last year's even 
though graduation took two of the 
team's top players. 

According to Kalkhoff, Linton 
Lewis, C'86, and Jonathan Woolf- 
son, C'85, will lead the list of re- 
turning players from last year's 
squad. Freshman Kenny Alexander, 
C'88, will be an important contribu- 
tor to the team along with four

other freshmen. 

If homecourt advantage is good to 
the Tigers, .Sewanee will be in ex- 
cellent shape as they play twenty- 
three of twenty-six matches at 
home, including the College Ath- 
letic Conference Tournament 
matches in May. 

With a stronger team than last 
year's and a definite homecourt ad- 
vantage throughout the season, 
Kalkhoff is confident of improving 
on last year's 15-16 record. 

Kalkhoff feels that if his players 
stay healthy and on top of their 
game, they will be strong con- 
tenders in the CAC and possibly ad- 
vance into the NCAA-Division III 
tournament at Washington and Lee 
University in May. 

Women's Tennis 

The 1985 women's tennis team will 
return four players and add five 
very talented freshmen as they try 
to improve on last year's 5-4 season. 

All-conference player Adreinne 
Briggs, C'86, last year's number two 
player, leads the returnees. She is 

joined by third-year varsity [ 
Susy Steele, C'86, and Laurie Key- 
ser, C'85, and second-year varsity 
player, Louise Richardson, C'86. 

A talented group of freshmen is 
expected to contribute greatly to the 
1985 season along with Peggy 
Hodgkins, C'88, a highly ranked 
player in the state of Florida. Lisa 
Rust, C'88, also brings with her an 
excellent high school record, having 
gone undefeated in her senior year. 
Kathryn Heinsma, C'88, Kendall 
Jones, C'88, and Amy Amonette, 
C'88, will all play an important part 
this spring. 

Coach Jeannie Fissinger feels 
that even though this year's team is 
young, they will be competitive in 
the conference and Division III. 


After losing four of his top five play- 
ers to graduation, golf coach Horace 
Moore is optimistic for his team in 
what many are considering a re- 
building year. 

The team will still see four re- 
turning lettermen from last year's 
CAC second-place team and add 
three new linksmen to complete the 

roster for this spring. The three new 
players for the Tigers could come in 
and make the difference for a win- 
ning season. Only time will tell. 

Senior Arthur Brantley, C'85, is 
expected to lead the team this 
spring with Mark Rembert, C'86,

Pack Pro 

David Pack, C'84, had hopes of 
playing basketball at Sewanee 
when he arrived, but by the time he 
left he had broken virtually every 
Sewanee football pass-receiving re- 

cord and had been drafted by the 
Oakland Invaders of the United 
States Football League. 

Pack, the leading ; 
wanee history, compiled a four-year 
total of 174 catches for 2,786 yards. 
He holds two single-game receiving 
records, four single-season receiving 
records, and four career receiving 
records. In his most successful year, 
1982, he had fifty-six receptions for 
914 yards and seven touchdowns. 
That same year, he averaged 16.3 
yards a catch and was the sixth 
leading receiver in NCAA Division 
III — all of this during a nine-game 

His ninth-round pick in the re- 
cent USFL draft by the Oakland In- 
vaders was somewhat of a surprise 
since he had been scouted mostly by 
teams from the National Football 
League. Pack was selected as a wide 
receiver with the Invaders and com- 
peted with the likes of All-USFL 
wide receiver Anthony Carter and 
Derrick Holloway. After a week and 
a half, Pack was cut from the squad. 
Upon his release from the Invaders, 
he will be a free agent and is hoping 
to try out with a NFL team.

Alumni Affairs 

Clubs Gather Steam for '85 

The Birmingham Sewanee Club has 
had a couple of events lately to re- 
port. On November 17 we had our 
annual Founders' Day Banquet 
with the guest speaker being Dr. 
Gil Gilchrist. Dr. Gilchrist stimu- 
lated our memories of Sewanee with 
stories of what Sewanee has meant 
to him and to others. Suzanne Gra- 
ham reported on the past year's 
events and introduced the new offi- 
cers for 1985: Charles Mayer, C'76, 
president, and Jean Oliver, C'79, 
and Cacki Sullivan, C'81, vice presi- 
dents. On January 6 Maibeth Por- 
ter, C'76, played host to our annual 
prospective student party at which 
a large crowd of Birmingham area 
high school seniors were in attend- 
ance. Don Pippen spoke briefly 
about Sewanee. Other alumni pres- 
ent were Martin Tilson, Jr., John 
and Jean Oliver, John McCary, Ivey 
Jackson, Cacki Sullivan, and Suz- 
anne Graham. We hope all pros- 
pectives were positively influenced 
by our efforts. 

John Hill, C80, leads other alumni in singing the Alma Mater at the 
Cheek wood Christmas party of the Nashville Sewanee Club. Singing 
Charles Mayer, C'76 along are Susan Glenn, Pam Morris, Joanne and Jim Wilson, and Mar- 
cus Barley. 


The Sewanee Club of Atlanta re- 
ports an active fall. It began with 
the election of officers for the com- 
ing year. The "meeting" was held at 
the Brandy House Pub, and those 
elected (i.e. those persons away 
from the table at the time of the 
election) are Michael D. Payne, 
C'76, president; Lisa McDonough 
Howick, C'81, vice-president; Jesse 
Baumhower, C'81, vice-president; 
Laurin McSwain, CT3, treasurer, 
and Samford Mitchell, C'81, 

A keg party was planned by three 
of the club's more prominent bache- 
lors, Charles Kirkland, C'79, Jay 
Fisher, C'79, and Scott Tully, C'79. 
The party was held at their home in 

the Inman Park area and, as ex- 
pected, continued as long as the 
kegs did. 

The next function was the annual 
Christmas party arranged again by 
Montague L. (Cosmo), C'74, and 
Laura Boyd at their home. About 
seventy alumni of the College and 
Seminary, as well as many parents 
of alumni, joined in this party 
which is increasingly becoming a 
favorite of local club members. The 
highlight of the party was a draw 
for a $100 cash door prize which 
was won by Will Lyons, C78, who, 
in the spirit of Christmas (or maybe 
by some other spirit), made a gift of 
the prize back to the Club. Will

During the General Convention of 
the Episcopal Church which will be 
held in September in Anaheim, Cal- 
ifornia, the University will once 
again sponsor a Sewanee dinner for 
all alumni and friends. 

The dinner is scheduled for Sep- 
tember 9 at one of the Anaheim ho- 
tels. The exact place and time will 
be published and advertised by

Many club members also partici- 
pated in the reception for pros- 
pective students organized by the 
admissions office. It was held on 
January 13, 1985, at St. Phillip's 
Cathedral- The turnout was excel- 
lent with approximately 200 pros- 
pective students and parents in 
attendance. Mrs. Lisa Howick 
worked with Mr. Wilkes and his 
staff on behalf of the Club. 

While plans for the coming year 
have not been finalized, the Club is 
considering a party to usher in the 
spring, an award to a local distin- 
guished alumnus or alumna in rec- 
ognition of contributions to the 
University, and of course a Braves 
game and softball game against lo- 
cal Washington and Lee alumni. 


The Nashville Sewanee Club had a 
very exciting and successful Christ- 
mas party at Cheekwood, December 
14, 1984. Our club was invited to 
participate in a joint alumni func- 
tion with the University of North 
Carolina, the University of Vir- 
ginia, Washington and Lee Univer- 
sity, Harvard University, Princeton 
University, and Yale University. In 
all, 300 alumni attended the cock- 
tail supper. It was a lovely event, 
especially since we enjoyed the 
"Trees of Christmas" displayed in 
the Botanical Gardens at Cheek- 
wood. Some of the guests included 


Alumni, friends, and parents of 

alumni, and people who have 

simply heard about Sewanee and 

took the opportunity to visit.

New Orleans 

The Sewanee Club of New Orleans 
ushered in the new year with a 
Crawfish Boil. Despite nasty 
weather, over sixty people showed 
up at the Trinity Parish Hall for the 
occasion. The gathering included 
alumni, current students, pros- 
pective students and their parents, 
and special guest, Professor Dale 
Richardson. Field Gomilla, Craw- 
fish Boiler Extra- ordinaire, pre- 
sided over preparation of the spicy 
mudbugs. Brad Jones, outgoing 
president, orchestrated the affair. 
New officers for 1985 are Sylvia 
Robertshaw, president; Anne Bry- 
son, vice president; and Margo 
Johnson, treasurer. 


The Sewanee Club of Jacksonville 
held its annual Christmas party at 
the Seminole Club on December 12, 
1984. The party was well attended 
by approximately sixty alumni and 
guests. The University made avail- 
able for the party a number of gifts 
suitable for Christmas, including 
some Andrew Lytle publications, 
sketches, ties, and the like. Every- 
one there had a most enjoyable 
time. The planning of the party was 
accomplished by Ricky Hart, Peyton 
Scheppe, and Hank Coxe, and addi- 
tional plans were immediately be- 
gun for a late winter oyster roast, 
which we hope will again be at Gar- 
nett Ashby's farm on the west side 
of Jacksonville. The letter from Se- 
wanee expressed interest in men- 
tioning any recent elections. The 
only elections with which we were 
familiar were the presidential and 
the state-wide elections around the 
country in early November. For 
that matter, the Sewanee Club of 
Jacksonville has not, to anyone's 
memory, ever had an election to de- 
cide anything. It's too democratic.

On Sunday, December 2, twenty- 
two Sewanee alumni and friends 
braved rainy weather and Christ- 
mas shoppers to view "A Day in the 
Country — Impressionism and the 
French Landscape" at the Art Insti- 

tute of Chicago. The exhibit, which 
featured 137 works by Monet, Pi- 
casso, Renoir, Van Gogh, and oth- 
ers, attracted some of our local 
Sewanee art appreciators such as 
John Baar, Ann Vanderslice, Chris 
Hehmayer, Ned Moore, Paul Al- 
varez, and Laurie and Marc 

After the exhibit the group went 
to the Palmer House for refresh- 
ments and to further discuss the ex- 
hibit. All in all, it was a well- 
received event, and the Sewanee 
Club of Chicago was fortunate to 
have been able to arrange this for 
the group viewing. The Club looks 
forward to its next get-together this 


On December 16, 1984, the Sewa- 
nee Club of Mobile held a dinner at 
the Athelstan Club. The guest 
speaker that evening was Andrew 
Lytle, who charmed the group after 
dinner with his story "Jericho, Jeri- 
cho, Jericho." There 'was a big 
crowd which included friends of the 
Mobile Sewanee club as well as 

A reception was held at the lovely 
home of Joy and Tom Rue on the 
evening of January 17, 1985. Pros- 
pective students and their parents 
were invited and a group of alumni 
and current students was present to 
discuss life at Sewanee with them. 
Don Pippen of the admissions office 
showed a slide presentation which 
gave prospective students a feel for 
life on the Mountain and made 
alumni long to be back. 

The Club is talking of plans for a 
spring picnic on Mobile Bay.

Alumni and their families, cur- 
rent and prospective students and 
parents, and friends of Sewanee 
were among those at the holiday 
wines- and- foods party. This was 
the club's first get-together in sev- 
eral years; so there was much catch-

The members talked about what 
they could do to help Sewanee get 
more students from Middle Georgia

Tidewater Chapter? 

The second annual meeting of the 
Tidewater Chapter of the Virginia 
Sewanee Club took place on the 
weekend of January 25-27 at the 
home of Kathleen Redfern, C'83. 
The members present included 
Kathleen, of course, and David 
"Doc" Gilbert, C'84. Minutes for the 
previous meeting were approved in 
spite of the fact that they could not 
be located. 

The guest speaker, Sarah Cotton, 
C'83, was beamed in from Cleve- 
land, Ohio (Thanks, Scotty). The 
topic of discussion was "Purgatory 
and Life After Sewanee: Are They 
One and the Same?" (And we are 
not even Catholic.) 

Additional activities included a 
conference call to the Martina Drive 
Chapter of the Atlanta Sewanee 
Club, i.e. Mary Fitzgerald, C'83, 
Cheryl Poppell, C'83, and Carol

Other distinguished guests who 
were supposed to show up, but 
didn't, included Chris Teetor, C'83; 
Richard Spore, C'84; and Lee Good-

Re the December 1984 issue— "The 
Supreme Court and Football, Ice 
Cream and Willie Six," by Smith 

This was a delightful and entertain- 
ing article; however, I would like to 
add a comment with reference to 
Willie Six. It is true that Willie had 
never seen a touchdown scored 
against Sewanee. However, I hon- 
estly believe he earned his place of 
rest by his love, loyalty, and dedica- 
tion through his service to his fel- 
low man. God bless him, and may 
he rest in peace. 

One of the most descriptive sto- 
ries told on Willie during the 1940s 
era was about a football player that 
came in with a severe "charlie- 
horse" after practice. Willie imme- 
diately started his procedure of rub- 
bing and hot towels. Willie's hot 
towels were really steam towels, so 
hot that you wondered how he held 
them in his hands. The player went 
to sleep and woke up the next morn- 
ing with Willie still rubbing on his 
leg and applying his favorite "char- 
lie-horse" eliminator, steam towels. 

Willie was great, and the love in 
his heart was even greater. 

For some unknown reason, I am 
compelled to bring the enclosed 
class note to your attention. I've al- 
ways heard of people being married 
to their work, but I do think Mr. 
Clark has carried this a little too 

Overall I like the format of the 
News, and would like you to keep 
up the good work.

Published below is the major part of 
a letter and some photographs sent 
to the News by the Rt. Rev. Leo 
Frade, T'77, bishop of Honduras. 

There are days when I go to some 
mountain areas of Honduras that 
remind me a lot about Sewanee. 
Even the fog covering the ground 
and moving softly through the pines 
brings back memories of good times 
in the Holy Mountain. 

At present we have begun a theo- 
logical education program to pre- 
pare about twenty-five candidates 
for Holy Orders. We were hoping to 
use the EFM Sewanee program 
translated to Spanish. Sadly it was 
not ready; so now we are using the 
material published by a Protestant 
seminary in Central America. To 
coordinate this program I brought 
down here a recent Sewanee gradu- 
ate, the Rev. Carmen Guerrero; she 
will be responsible for the success of 
the program that begins this com- 
ing month according to the Hondu- 
ras calendar year. 

The growth of our Church is still 
tremendous. Honduras has the most 
successful growth rate of the Epis- 
copal Church. Most of our work has 
been taking place in rural areas, 
and now we have several villages 
throughout the country where 
everyone is Episcopalian. We are 
planning to increase our work in ur- 
ban areas considering the great 
number of "campesinos" moving 
into the cities. We are also looking 
forward to be funded by the Presid- 
ing Bishop's Fund to begin work 
within the Honduran Mosquitia 
where the Miskito Indians live. 
That work requires a lot of special- 
ized support. The only way to reach 
the area is by plane, in which you 
land on a muddy dirt strip in the 
middle of a huge swamp. Thousands 
of Miskito Indians, both refugees 
from Nicaragua and Honduran na- 

tive Indians of the same race, share 
the swamp. Even though a great 
number of them are Moravian, 
there are many that have no access 
to any church denomination. The 
other groups actively working there 
are the Roman Catholics and the 
Church of God of Cleveland, 

At present we have twenty-four 
churches, three clinics, one orphan- 
age, one technical school, one farm 
school, four regular schools, several 
agricultural projects, a theological 
preparation program, and refugee 
work. As a missionary bishop of a 
missionary diocese that barely had 
begun to function six years ago, I 
have found a lot of work to be done. 
For many years Honduras was the 
Cinderella of the area. At one point 
some mission officials had decided 
to close it because it was not a 
promising area, they said. Soon we 
will surpass the work that has been 
going on in the area. 

It was in 1979 when they conse- 
crated the first Honduran bishop 
that our Church began to grow. He 
lasted only five years until he had 
to resign due to his failing health. 
The hard work took its toll. But 
during that time the Church went 
from seven congregations to twenty- 
four. At present we are opening two 
more new congregations, and we 
have a waiting list of communities 
that want to have an Episcopal 
Church if we are able to provide 
them with the priest or deacon. 

There is much to do. Maybe there 
are College or Seminary students 
who would want to come down for a 
summer or a year to help us. Our 
address is: Oficina Diocesana, Apar- 
tado 764, Tegucigalpa D. C, Hondu- 
ras, Central America.

Thomas EPA Director 

Lee M. Thomas, C'67, has been named director of the Environmental 
Protection Agency, winning confirmation by the Senate with relative 

Mr. Thomas is so respected in and out of government circles that his 
confirmation was almost assured from the time he was nominated by 
President Reagan in November. Even representatives of the National 
Wildlife Federation and the National Audubon Society testified in sup- 
port of him. 

Thomas is from a family of Sewanee alumni — his father, Robert W. 
Thomas, Sr., C'31; a brother, Robert W. Thomas, Jr., C'64, and an uncle, 
Charles E. Thomas, C'27, all of South Carolina. 

After graduating from Sewanee, he earned a master's degree from the 
University of South Carolina. He joined the EPA in 1983 after a two- 
year stint as associate director of the Federal Emergency Management 
Agency. In that job he managed disaster relief efforts and was chairman 
of the president's task force on toxic waste problems at Times Beach, 

After July 1983 Thomas served as assistant administrator of EPA for 
solid waste and emergency response. He served as acting deputy admin- 
istrator of EPA for six months in 1983, and he supervised toxic waste 
cleanup as a chief deputy of EPA administrator William Ruckelshaus.

Class Notes 

Newspapering is, to me, the most challenging 
and satisfying occupation in the free world. 
There are certain requirements: you should be 
inquisitive without being obnoxious and you 
should know good writing, whether your own or 
somebody else's. And a few other requirements 
come to mind, like nerve. 

On my way to maturity I lived a somewhat 
checkered life. At age ten, I experienced several 
distractions, such as portraying Sir Joseph Por- 
ter, K.C.B., in the Peabody Dem School produc- 
tion of the English musical comedy Pinafore, 
from which I have not yet recovered. About the 
same time 1 produced a neighborhood newspaper 
and got ink all over myself and anybody else who 
would pay a nickel for a copy. 

By the time I reached Sewanee, I considered 
myself ajournalist, having spent more time in a 
print shop editing the Peabody monthly and an- 
nual than I had spent in school. My first break 
on the Mountain came when I got the job as Se- 
wanee rep for the Nashville Banner. Some time 
later I made the mistake of editing the frosh is- 
sue of the Sewanee Purple, a take-off on the real 
thing which did not endear me to the upperclass- 
men. I matured a little with that experience. 

The thing I did that seemed to impress my con- 
temporaries most was joining John Whi taker, a 
classmate, in establishing The Mountain Goat, a 
humor magazine then. Looking back, it appears 
incongruous for John, who became a famous cor- 
respondent of the New York Herald- Tribune, 
covering wars in Ethiopia, Spain. Italy, China, 
and elsewhere, to be editing jokes and silly car- 
toons. Maybe for me, too, but of course we didn't 
realize then that they were silly. We just broke 
out laughing with the rest when anybody read 
aloud a joke in the Goat. But now I don't think it 
was funny. And I'm sure John wouldn't, either. 
(John Whitaker died of a stomach ailment suf- 
fered in China when he was on duty there. He is 
buried on home soil in Chattanooga.) 

I graduated from Sewanee after three years, 
having spent a summer there chasing butterflies 
and girls, which aren't there at other times, or 
weren't. I should have stayed the fourth year and 
spent it in the library, listening to Prof. Tudor 
Seymour Long and Prof. Eugene Kayden, bril- 
liant teachers. But the time was not altogether 
wasted. I spent it studying writing at Columbia 
U. in the daytime and night life in New York 
after dark. Very instructive. 

And then I returned to Nashville to look for a 
job. I called on John H. Nye, managing editor of 
The Tennessean, who was tall and stooped, with 
a great head of white hair and few words. He 
heard me out and then said he couldn't hire me 
because his budget was all allocated. I was suspi- 
cious of what he meant and kept calling on him. 
After three weeks of my nagging him, he told me 
1 could come to work for free, which I did, and 
pretty soon he put me on the payroll at $35 per 
week. I had become a journalist. 

The work was intriguing but sometimes 
alarming, as when the old press broke down in 

of Journalism 

by Coleman A. Harwell, C'26 

the middle of a run and another time when a 
pig(metal) crashed through the ceiling on the 
publisher's desk. 

By that time I had become managing editor as 
Jack Nye had moved up to be editor. I felt impor- 
tant — my salary was $80 — but I really didn't 
know for sure what a managing editor was sup- 
posed to do. I thought about it a while and re- 
membered how, when we were at Sewanee, John 
Whitaker and I planned to work together some 
day in the big city. I telephoned John and shared 
my thoughts with him. He agreed. Then I 
phoned Clem Randau, a New York v-p of United 
Press whom I knew well from his calls on me in 
Nashville. UP was owned by Scripps-Howard 
which also owned the New York World-Tele- 
gram. Clem said he'd look around for me and 
talk with John. 

In less than a month, a miracle happened. Lee 
Wood, editor of the World-Telegram, sent word 
for me to come to see him. He spent several 


hours with me, mostly analyzing copies of The 
Tennessean which I brought along and spread 
out on the floor in a Statler hotel room. He of- 
fered me a job a $80 per week and assured me I 
would be making $125 in no time at all. I 

That was 1932. And as everyone knows now, 
there were no raises then. But I got an 

The little New York Telegram had been a play- 
thing that Scripps- Howard hoped to develop into 
something big, and it did. The World was a 
giant, publishing morning, evening, and Sunday 
editions and considered by some to be the best 
paper in New York, but it was broke. So Mr. Pu- 
litzer, the dispenser of prizes, sold it cheap. And 
the giant and the mouse were merged. 

To begin with I was on the lobster shift — 11 
p.m. to 7 a.m. — and sat acsoss the news desk 
from Irving Moscow, night editor, who could trim 
a 500 word UP story to 50 words in ten seconds 
and never omit anything important. He layed 
out every news page and rode herd on the press 
room. The paper grew and in a few months I 
shared the editing and loved it. After a year Lee 
called me to his corner and said I was going to 
handle features and have daytime hours. (I was 
happy and Ann cried that night when I told her.) 
In the course of time I worked in every news and 
editorial department and knew every member of 
the staff and every printer. And, oh yes, my sal- 
ary, though no princely thing, went up accord- 
ingly. The World-Tely was a splendid newspaper 
and I was very fortunate in my experience there. 

Six years after I went to New York, Scripps- 
Howard tapped me to be managing editor of its 
Denver paper, the Rocky Mountain News and, al- 
most on the same day Silliman Evans, who had 
just bought The Tennessean, offered me the posi- 
tion of executive editor. I returned to Nashville. 
Mr. Evans, with help from me and others, took 
the paper from bankruptcy to wide renown. 

Following Mr. Evans' death, in 1955, 1 had the 
misfortune of being involved in differences with 
his sons, Silliman, Jr., and Amon Carter Evans. 
I left the paper in 1959. 

After that I returned to another challenging 
opportunity publishing in a small but lively city, 
Cookeville. I bought , the Cookville Herald and 
the Citizen, in 1960. 

Not since my first job as a reporter thirty-four 
years earlier, had I been free to cover the news 
myself. I chose the basic assignments of City 
Hall, County Court House, and education. Com- 
bining all this with writing editorials and mod- 
ernizing the plant, I had a busy and happy life. 

Although I ruffled some feathers, justifiably as 
I saw it, I believe a great majority of Cookeville 
citizens agreed with our positions. The circula- 
tion showed it. 

In our first year, the Herald and Citizen won 
more awards in the annual state-wide contests 
than any other paper in Tennessee. Ten years 
later, at 65, 1 decided to say farewell to journal- 
ism. But I'm still using my Royal portable.

Charles Harrison: The Contingency of Teaching 

(This essay by Andrew Lytle is the 
Foreword to Shakespeare's Insistent 
Theme, a volume of Charles Harri- 
son's essays and occasional writings 
to be published by the University 
this spring. We are pleased to pub- 
lish this essay as a tribute to Dean 
Harrison, who died at home on Jan- 
uary 25.— editor) 

These essays and reviews could only 
be those of a great teacher. They 
suggest classroom lectures, except 
in the reviews which require the 
discretion proper to the variety of 
attitudes engaged. Though Charles 
Harrison's vantages on the same 
subject may differ, his judgment 
and comparisons remain always 
convincing. As a writer as well as a 
teacher he belongs more fully to the 
Academy, insofar as his publica- 
tions may enter the larger forum of 
learning. This extension of the 
llarges formal dis- 
deleting the usual discur- 
; of questions and answers 
on the way to disposing of ignorance 
and lassitude. This is what the con- 
tingency of teaching means. 

It does not mean the plethora of 
publications asked for, even de- 
manded, by administrators. Librar- 
ies of universities groan with third- 
and fourth-rate "scholarly" matters 
whose authors could have spent the 
time better teaching their classes. 
Obviously, with Charles Harrison's 
collection in mind, I do not mean 
that teachers should never be pub- 
lished. But great care should be 

taken lest they be diverted from 
their proper roles. The mere act of 
setting words to print does not as- 
sure them cogent reflection, to use 
one of Harrison's most persistent 

The "Poet as Witness" and 
"Shakespeare's Insistent Theme," 
two of his most cogent essays, open 
a door to the ideal classroom in ses- 
sion. Here or privately, wherever he 
meets the student, his instruction 
and influence derives from the same 
set of principles and beliefs. This is 
his strength — giving form and di- 
rection to students, eagerly but 
dazedly standing where brook and 
river meet. He knows that instruc- 
tion carries less weight when 
teacher does not love student. He 
need not indulge them, but there 
are times, of course, for clarification 
or interpretation beyond the appre- 
hension of the as yet uninformed. 
This is of the essence of reading lit- 
erature — or of any good instruction, 
for that matter. To read well is to 
enhance and enrich life beyond the 
classroom, so that graduates can en- 
ter and play a better role in society. 
We learn from his insistent theme 
that "Shakespeare's mind is victo- 
rious (quoting Matthew Arnold's 
sonnet) in that it comprehends all 
that we can experience on earth and 
all that we know." 

He further elaborates "...the one 
concern common to the whole cor- 
pus of Shakespeare's works is the 
meaning of social order — actual so- 
cial order and ideal social order." To 

an Elizabethan, he reminds us, the 
word natural has several meanings, 
but its most important synonym is 
ideal. This means Christian order, 
whose feudal forms were being cor- 
rupted but still enclosed the endur- 
ing attitudes of communal living. 
The community of saints was the 
ultimate hope, but the worldly com- 
munity derived from the assump- 
tion that man is made in God's 
image (curiously the most exclusive 
restriction put upon the divine crea- 
tivity). Dante's "His Will is our 
Peace" is the ethical absolute of Me- 
dieval understanding. 

Natural and reasonable were al- 
most synonyms. They affirmed the 
dignity of man and its protection 
through the hierarchies of state and 
family. But when a prince ruled 
from private appetite and will or or 
a father failed to recognize the hu- 
manity of a child, order became 
perverted. Machiavelli's The Prince 
either initiated or defined this 
change in Christian polity, allowing 
the will of the kings and fathers to 
be autonomous. This is the burden 
of the action of Shakespeare's trage- 
dies and more serious plays: the pri- 
vate will against the community of 
man. Bottom the weaver in Mid- 
summer Night's Dream is quoted: "I 
am a man as other men are." Even 
in high estate, Richard II, after 
comparing himself to the sun and 
lion, just before the climax accepts 
his true condition, "I live with 
bread like you..." King Lear in the 
Mount Everest of Tragedy sins both 

"*^f 4r$&c "*lf™" 

as father and king, but in his reun- 
ion with Cordelia he is brought to 
say, "As I am a man, I do believe 
this lady to be my child Cordelia." 

The essayist reduces the complex 
to common understanding, but in no 
way asks the reader to believe that 
such is a full reading or meaning of 
poetry. As an aside he will dispose 
of the heresy that man can create. 
Only God does that. Man imitates 
and in this small way may give an 
undiscovered meaning to his arti- 
facts, the puzzle left by the Creator 
to his creature man. Harrison's 
great learning is apparent not only 
in its direct use but, almost at times 
accidentally, as aside. Probably its 
most stunning instance is his essay 
on Santayana. Through ironic refer- 
ences a profound truth presents it- 
self, to the end that this essay may 
be the best exposure of this gifted 
but difficult man. 

But The Poet as Witness must 
surely be the final statement of 
Harrison's understanding and his 
capacity to deliver it. Here again 
the hard is made easy. To do this he 
evokes both Dante and Shake- 
speare. Dante, he says, is Medieval; 
Shakespeare is Renaissance. He fal- 
ters a little here, but he quickly col- 
lects himself by saying the roots of 
the Renaissance are in "the Medie- 
val past." He knows that any flow- 
ering comes from the substance 
upon which the root feeds.

Atlanta's Child Elected 
Nineteenth Chancellor 

One ofSewanee's most loyal sons, 
the Rt. Rev. Charles Judson Child, 
Jr., C'44, T'47. H'78, bishop of At- 
lanta, is the nineteenth Chancellor 
of the University, elected May 3 by 
the Board of Trustees. 

Bishop Child was installed the 
afternoon of his election in a simple 
but moving service bv retiring 
Chancellor Furman C. Stough in 
All Saints' Chapel. Bishop Child 
will serve a term of six years. 

The new Chancellor is a native of 
New Jersey. He was graduated from 
both the College and the School of 
Theology and did graduate work at 
St. Augustine's College in Canter- 
bury, England. 

After his ordination to the priest- 
hood. Bishop Child served sixteen 
years as rector of St. Bartholomew's 
Church in Ho Ho Kus, New Jersey. 
He was called to be the canon pas- 
tor of the Cathedral of St. Philip in 
Atlanta in 1967. In October of 1977, 
he was elected suffragan bishop of 
the Diocese of Atlanta and was con- 
secrated in 1978. He was installed 
as the bishop of Atlanta in Novem- 
ber of 1983. 

In the Diocese of Newark, he 
served as chairman of the Commis- 
sion on Mutual Responsibility and 
was a member of the Board of Ex- 
amining Chaplains. He served on 
the Executive Board of the Youth 
Consultation Service and was chair- 
man of the diocesan College Com- 
mittee. He was a diocesan 
.representative to the Anglican Con- 
ference held in Toronto, Canada, in 

He chaired the House of Bishops 
music committee at the 1982 Gen- 
eral Convention and helped shep- 
herd the new hymnal through the 

The citation on the occasion of the 
presentation of his honorary degree 
read, in part: "For his deep commit- 
ment to the pastoral ministry of the 
Church; for his constant concern for 
high educational standards for the 
Church's priesthood; for his devo- 
tion to the whole Anglican Com- 
munion; and for his leadership in 
Episcopal office, the University of 
the South confers upon him the de- 
gree of Doctor of Divinity, honoris 

Century II Volunteers 
May Have Goal in Sight 

A centerpiece of the later stages 
of the campaign will be endowed ac- 
ademic chairs, which are being 
sought through gifts from the own- 
ing dioceses. Details of the plan 
were also announced at the Board of 
Trustees meeting. 

Another crucial part of the cam- 
paign is the Alumni Phase of Cen- 
tury II. The completion of this 
phase was planned during the an- 
nual meeting of the Alumni Council 
May 4. With the leadership and aid 
of alumni volunteers, who are con- 
tacting alumni, several hundred ad- 
ditional gifts are anticipated. The 
goal of the Alumni Phase is $1 mil- 
Earlier this year, 460 alumni 
pledged an average of $185 each 
during a student-led phonathon-. 
The more than $85,000 exceeded 
the 1984 phonathon pledges by over 

The Century II Campaign crossed 
the $43-million mark this spring, 
and campaign leaders were talking 
optimistically of reaching the $50- 
million goal by Founders' Day, Oc- 
tober 7. 

Allan C. King, C'51, of Houston, 
general chairman of Century II, 
was in Sewanee in early May, dur- 
ing the meetings of the Board of Re- 
gents and the Board of Trustees. He 
said the campaign organization has 
some important individual pros- 
pects in mind "but not $7 million 
worth." He called upon all ofSewa- 
nee's friends to direct their atten- 
tion toward the successful 
completion of Century II. 

In speaking of the value of Sewar 
nee, he said students can get some- 
thing at Sewanee they cannot get 
anywhere else. 

Commencement 1985 

Amidst applause and bright sun- 
shine the University's newest 
alumni processed out of All Saints' 
Chapel May 26. following the Uni- 
versity's U7th spring Commence- 
ment for the conferring of degrees. 

Many of the graduates' friends 
and relatives unable to find seats in 
the Chapel sat in chairs on the lawn 
where they could hear the proceed- 
ings through speakers. Following 
the service, those outside the 
Chapel lined up on either side of the 
sidewalk and applauded the new 
graduates as they passed through. 

The University conferred degrees 
on 230 candidates from the College 
of Arts and Sciences and eighteen 
candidates from the School of Theol- 

ogy. One hundred and ninety-four 
candidates received their Bachelor 
of Arts degrees with 36 receiving 
their Bachelor of Science degrees. 
The School of Theology awarded 
two Doctor of Ministry degrees and 
sixteen Master of Divinity degrees. 
Four honorary degrees were also 
conferred during the Commence- 
ment convocation. Honorary Doctor 
of'Divinilv degrees were awarded to 
the Rt. Rev. Alex Dockerv Dickson, 
Jr.. T'58. bishop of West Tennessee, 
and to the &ev. John Herbert 
MacNaughton, rector of Christ 
Episcopal church in San Antonio. 
Texas, and baccalaureate speaker. 
Matthew Costigan, treasurer of the 



National Episcopal Church, re- 
ceived an honorary Doctor of Civil 
Law degree, and an honorary Doc- 
tor of Letters was conferred upon

Nick Williams and the Sewanee Spirit 

by Ward Ritchie, C*28 

The new Nick B. Williams Chair of 
English Literature has been funded 
with a grant of $750,000 from the 
Harry G. Steele Foundation of Cali- 
fornia. Nick Williams, an honorary 
Doctor of Civil Law from the Uni- 
versity of the South, lives in semi- 
retirement in the seaside commu- 
nity of South Laguna Beach in Cali- 
fornia with his wife Barbara Steele 
Williams, the daughter of Harry G. 
Steele. From 1951 until 1971 he 
was managing editor Df the Los An- 
geles Times. Now at the age of sev- 
enty-eight, he spends his days 
puttering in the garden, watching 
the ever-changing character of the 
endless ocean from a comfortable 
chair by the panorama window, and 
writing reviews of the quantities of 
mystery novels with which the book 
editor of the Times manages to fill 
Nick's study. 

As the generous gift indicates, 
Nick Williams has an abiding loy- 
alty to the University of the South, 
filled with memories of those days 
in the mid-twenties when he was a 
student on the campus. Then, there 
were at most two hundred students 
in this all men's school, yet it was a 
member of the powerful Southern 
Conference in athletics, comprised 
of such schools as Alabama. Tennes- 
see, Tulane, Georgia Tech, and Se- 
wanee's particular arch-rival, 
Vanderbilt. Not too many games 
were won against these powerful 
opponents, but when there was an 
occasional victory, especially over 
Vanderbilt. it erupted into a wild, 
hysterical holiday. On one such oc- 
casion even one of the college build- 
ings was set afire. 

When Nick was hardly more than 
a baby in 1909 or 1910, his father 
and mother attended a football 
game in Birmingham in which Se- 
wanee was playing the University 
of Alabama. She was especially im- 
pressed with the play of Frank 
Alexander Juhan. Years later, as 
Bishop Juhan, he visited the Wil- 
liamses in Fort Worth and con- 
vinced Mrs. Williams that the 
University of the South was the 
proper choice for her son, Nick, who 
was by then a senior in high school. 
And so he abandoned the plains of 
Texas for the mountain campus of 

He registered in the great book 
which contained the names of gen- 
erations of matriculants as the 
3274th entering student. His head 
was soon shaved, as was the tradi- 
tion with all freshmen, and he was 
given a room in the old Sewanee 
Inn, now called Elliott Hall. It was 
then a dormitory during the school 
terms and was transformed into an . 
attractive hotel during the i 

months. He was pledged Kappa Al- 
pha fraternity and the brothers, 
taking a dim view of his associates 
in the Inn, arranged to transfer him 
to rooms in Saint Luke's. Whether 
this improved the caliber of his 
companions is questionable, as he 
related in a letter to Trudy Mignery 
of the library in 1978. He and a cou- 
ple of other students in Professor 
Gass's Greek class attempted to put 
together a monumental "snow" job 
to impress the good professor. Their 
masterpiece has been preserved in 
the duPont Library together with 
Nick's letter: 

J am enormously (and nostalgi- 
cally) indebted both to you and to 
your daughter for the transcript. 
translation, and resketchmgof'The 
Civilization of the Hellenes." 

The original sketches. I believe, 
were done by Cleve Williams, a fel- 
low Kappa Alpha ahd a coinhabi- 
tant las was Henry Bell Hodgkins) 
of St. Luke's— although my own 
suite-mate was George Mahoney, 
freshman iclass '26). football cap- 
tain, anda star (I think) thereafter. I 
don't now recall what or how much 
Henry Bell and I contributed, but 
surely something, if only the ecstat- 
ics of corn whiskey — doubtless 
hauled up from the cave and the 
cabin of Aunt Lizzie's Dog Tooth 

Quite obviously all three of us, 
and certainly I, had been negligent 
in the usual routines of scholarship 
in Henry Markley Gass's course on 
Greece, and were trying, by smart- 
aleckness. to seem smarter than we 
were. I'm not now sure about Henry 
Bell, but I think Cleve and I were 
dawdlers and poseurs, pretending to 
remember more of what Dr. Gass 
said than in fact we did — and thus 
faking it, rewriting Plato, 

Cleve (for all that) was a legiti- 
mate hero, which I never was. After 
I got to California, in 1931, 1 read 
an Associated Press dispatch from (I 
believe) Tacoma, or maybe Spokane, 
reporting that Cleve, by then an As- 
sociated Press bureau chief, calmly 
and deliberately picked up a bomb 
that had been planted in the office of 
a newspaper there and walked out of 
the building with it, then tossed it 
from sidewalk to middle of the 
street, where it exploded thunder- 
ously. And I do remember how de- 
pressed I was to read an AP report 
that Cleve had been killed in a 
tank — an armored vehicle— accident 
at what had been and later was 
again to be the Santa Anita race- 
track in Arcadia, not far from Los 
Angeles. I had not known he was 
there— this was in that first year of 
American involvement in World 
War II, when we did not know 

whether to expect invasion from the 
east (Germany) or the west (Japan). 
I was living in Pasadena by then — a 
half-hour's drive from Santa Anita. 
We could have had a 
time that Cleve couldgefa one-day 
pass. But he did not kndw how close 
to him I was, nor did I know— until 
the report of it came across mv desk 
at the Times. 

Our collaborator on the "Civiliza- 
tion of the Hellenes," Henrv Bell 
Hodgkins, was when I knew him ad- 
dicted to the plus-fours of that time 
m the early twenties—a sort of very 
baggy pants that buckled at the 
knees and drooped below them— plus 
two-toned shoes, usually tan-and- 
white but sometimes black-and- 
white. And of course knee-length 
and sort-of- Argyll socks. But what I 
remember most about Henry Bell, 
except for his enormous good humor. 
was the night in Saint Luke's when 
all of us were over-indulging in 
Aunt Lizzie's infamous decoction — 
Cleve. Henry Bell, Mahoney. God 
only knows who else, and me — when 
Henry Bell produced from some- 
where an enormous and ornate pis- 
tol, doubtless a family heirloom, and 
after a mock-heroic farewell pointed 
it at his temple and — while we 
screamed— pulled the trigger. No 
blast, no blood— we thought it enor- 
mously comical. But Mahoney, al- 
ways serious, then chided Henrv 
Bell for (a) scaring the hell out of us 
and(b) taking a chance like that. 
"But it wasn't loaded— I knew it 
wasn't loaded, it was just a spoof." 
said Henry Bell, and pointed it to- 
ward the ceiling and pulled the 

There was an enormous explosion. 
When we looked up, there was a hole 
the size of a golfball in the plaster, 
and seconds later the residents of the 
suite above came thundering down 
the steps, cursing step by step — the 
bullet had passed through their 
suite and on through the ceiling 
above them, and they thought it was 
not funny. Neither did we, nor did 
Henry Bell, I suppose, for he had 
fainted. Or passed out cold. 

Life on our landing of Saint 
Luke's was tumultuous. Mahoney 
and I once heard a frightful din in 
the suite across the way, a suite 
shared by Cleve and Majl Ewing. a 
student of French literature, and a 
short, stocky theologian whose name 
iGod forgive me) I cannot recall- 
Reams, I think. When the screams 
became excessive. Mahoney and I left 
the crock of beer we were attempting 
to brew (it failed subsequently, and 
we poured it out the window! and 
charged across the landing. It 
seemed that Majl, using an epce, 
was dueling with Reams, using a 
Turkish scimitar, and that Majl 
pinked him. drawing a little blood 
and enraging him. Reams, much (he 
smaller, then charged with the mon- 
strous slashes of the scimitar, a 
sight so terrifying thai Mail (led into 
his clothes closet, slammed the door, 
and clung furiously to its knob when 
Mahoney and I arrived. Reams was 
hacking that closed door to splinters, 
blow after blow with htm scimitar. 
cutting his way through to get at 
Majl, and in the process shredding 
several ofMajf's fanciest suits, 
which were hanging from hooks on 
the inside of the door. Mahoney, for- 
ever a hero, at football or whatever, 
persuaded Reams to cut it out. 


I later saw MajLl think, on the 

beach at Santo Monica, here in 
Southern California, but I was too 
timid, or too engrossed With the gor- 
geous redhead who was with me, to 
speak to him. I think tt was the red- 
head that diverted me from doing it. 
She could have diverted me from far 
greater— and. do you knowiwhwh of 
course von couldn't know), I can't 
now even recall her name. But I re- 
call ail else about her. It was not the 
day for a Sewanee reunion. 

My wife Barbara, who is not a 
redhead and never was— she passed, 
she tells me, briefly through an in- 
carnation as a Harlow blonde but 
that was before I knew her— some- 
times yawns these days when I try to 
tell her of the greatness of Sewanee 
and my time there, and sometimes I 
yawn (behind my palm) when she 
tells me of her time at Vassarand 
later at Mills in Oakland. It seems 
that we never quite recover from the 
delightful and often astonishing va- 
garies of our springtimes, for then 
we had the world by the tall, even 
the world was not then and has not 
since been totally aware of it. 

But what matters is, we thought 
we had it that way then. 

Nick, as he recalls, was somewhat 
chubby in his college days, but he 
aspired to the glory that seems to be 
bestowed upon athletes, and also he 
hungered after a seat at the train- 
ing table with its special delicacies. 
In his sophomore year he went out 
for track. Not being fast enough for 
the dashes, nor husky enough for 
the weights, the coach designated 
him as a miler. This was a tough as- 
signment for the pudgy young fel- 
low, but he persisted even though 
there were several faster men than 
he in that event. When the Vander- 
bilt meet came, the coach came up 
with some brilliant strategy. He put 
Nick in the mile run as a pace 
maker, telling him to start out run- 
ning as fast as he could, perhaps 
tempting the Vanderbilt milers to 
follow him and wear themselves out 
before the finish of the race. It 
didn't exactly work out that way. At 
the half mile mark he was a good 
two hundred yards ahead of the 
field, but he was tiring fast and 
gradually was passed by all of the 
runners, galloping toward the fin- 
ishing line. He was so far behind 
that all had finished and he was 
alone on the track. The crowd, Se- 
wanee and Vanderbilt rooters alike, 
began cheering his plucky determi- 
nation to finish. He barely made it, 
falling exhausted on the finishing 
line. That night, whether it was for 
victory or defeat, there was a cele- 
bration at the Phi Gamma Delta 
house. During the festivities Nick 
stumbled and rolled down the hill, 

severely injured from exhaustion. 
That was his farewell to Sewanee. 
He was taken back to his family 
home in Fort Worth where he was 
bedridden for some four months. 

Eventually he recovered suffi- 
ciently to resume his education at 
the University of Texas from which 
school he graduated in 1929 to be- 
gin his long career in the newspa- 
per field. His first job was with the 
Fort Worth paper where he was em- 
ployed as a copy editor and headline 
writer. After a stint with the Nash- 
ville Tennessean he moved to Cali- 
fornia in 1931, where his mother 
was then living. He was soon em- 
ployed by the Los Angeles Times, 
which he served for forty years un- 
til his retirement in 1971, then 
being the managing editor. 

At Sewanee his literary achieve- 
ments consisted only of a flow of 
poems, which he continued to write 
for several years until he decided it 
was not his particular talent. He 
gradually turned to writing short 
stories with considerable success. 
He sold stories to the Saturday Eve- 
ning Post, Colliers, and numerous of 
the pulp magazines. At one time he 
was considering giving up his news- 
paper job, as he was making more 
money with his writing than he was 
getting on the paper.

Trustees Fill May Meeting 

One hundred and five members of 
the Board of Trustees gathered on 
the Mountain May 2 and 3 to hear 
reports on the state of the Univer- 
sity, to tend to some routine busi- 
ness, and to elect a new Chancellor, 
five other members of the Board of 
Regents, and the chaplain. 

The plenary sessions of the board 
were preceded by more than a day 
of orientation meetings for new 
trustees, who this year number al- 
most fifty. The total number of ac- 
tive trustees is more than 140 and 
has been increasing nearly every 
year as the number of owning 
dioceses has increased. 

In attendance for the 1985 meet- 
ing were twenty-two bishops, 
eighty-three clerical and lay trust- 
ees, and ten non-trustee regents. 

As expected the highlight of the 
meeting was the election of the 
Chancellor on Friday afternoon. 
The choice of the trustees was the 
Rt. Rev. Charles Judson Child, Jr., 
C'44, T'48, H78, bishop of Atlanta 
since 1983. He was the sole nomi- 
nee for Chancellor presented by the 
nominating committee; however, 
the Rt. Rev. Scott Field Bailey, 
bishop of West Texas, was nomi- 
nated from the floor. Both men have 
been avid supporters of the 

Within two hours of his election. 
Bishop Child, who had returned 
home from Canterbury. England. 
onlv the day before, was installed in 
a service in All Saints' Chapel. 

The trustees selected four of their 
own to serve on the Board of Re- 
gents. They are the Rt. Rev. C. 
FitzSimons Allison, C'49, bishop of 
South Carolina; Gerald L. DeBIois, 
C'63, of New Orleans; Harold Eus- 
tis, C'37, of Greenville, Mississippi, 

Followed bv retired Louisiana bishop and former Chancellor Girault 
Jones, T'28. H'49, the Rt. Rev. Duncan M. Gray, Jr., T53, H'72, of Mis- 
sissippi, and the Rt. Rev. Willis R. Henton, H'72, of Western Louisiana

and the Rev. William B. Trimble. 
Jr., C'62. T'69. of Memphis, Tennes- 
see. Prime F. Osborn III of Jackson- 
ville, Florida, was re-elected to the 
Board of Regents as a nominee of 
the regents. 

In addition, the Rev. William W. 
Millsaps was re-elected to a four- 
year term as University chaplain. 

The board heard reports during 
the plenary sessions from C. Cald- 
well Marks, C'42, retiring chairman 
of the Board of Regents; from Vice- 
Chancellor Ayres; from Allan C. 
King, C'51, general chairman of the 
Century II campaign; from William 
U. Whipple, vice-president for de- 
velopment; and from the Rt. Rev. 
Harold C. Gosnell, H'56, retired 
bishop of West Texas, who pre- 
sented a plan to seek funding for 
professorships from the owning 

Chancellor Furman C. Stough, 
bishop of Alabama, also gave his 
annual address in All Saints' 
Chapel the day before his six-year 
term ended. 

Mr. Marks emphasized the prog- 
ress in several areas that the Uni- 
versity has made in recent years, 
noting the retirement of debt and 
the accumulation of surplus funds, 
while faculty salaries have been in- 
creasng, the University's contribu- 
tion to student aid has increased, 
and improvements in physical facil- 
ities have been made. In enumerat- 
ing the fiscal and academic 
strengths of the University, Mr. 
Marks said, "The University is 
stronger than it has ever been." 

The Vice-Chancellor recognized 
and thanked several members of 
the Board of Trustees who have 
made special contributions, among 
them retiring Chancellor Furman 
Stough, Mr. Marks, and Mr. King. 

Mr. Ayres said that academic 
honors continue to come to students 
and faculty members at Sewanee. 
He spoke of spiritual life and the ac- 
tivities inspired and developed 
through the work of the chaplaincy. 
He said the social life is improving 
and is less dependent upon alcohol 
than it once was. and he mentioned 
the improvements in the athletic 

Mr. Ayres expressed his sorrow 
about the resignation of Dean John 
E. Booty, but he was happy to be 
able to announce that Dean Booty 
would be returning to the campus to 
teach after next year. 

The Vice-Chancellor said he also 
wanted to take the opportunity to 
thank publicly Provost Arthur M. 
Schaefer for his management and 
noted that this year will be the 
eighth consecutive year that the 
University will close its books with 
a surplus. 


In his final address as Chancellor, 
delivered to members of the Board of 
Trustees and the University commu- 
nity in All Saints' Chapel, Bishop 
Furman Stough was able to look 
back upon the six years of his tenure 
with satisfaction— with pride in his 
University. From his experience, he 
also spoke of the problems and chal- 
lenges that Sewanee still faces. His 
words were not those of idle retire- 
ment, for he has made himself avail- 
able as a nominee for Presiding 
Bishop at this year's Episcopal Gen- 
eral Convention. Following are ex- 
cerpts from Bishop Stough's May 2 

Our Freedom in Christ 

what I am 
accept tha 

by the Rt. Rev. Furman C. 
Stough, C*51, T*55, H'71 

Under the mercy of God, it has been 
my particular privilege and joy to 
serve as your Chancellor these past 
six years. They have been vigorous 
years of growth and development 
for the University under the superb 
leadership of the Vice-Chancellor, 
Robert Ayres. I would use the words 
quality and enhancement to charac- 
terize this period. The quality of the 
student body and the quality of aca- 
demic instruction has been en- 
hanced; the financial foundation of 
the University has been solidified; 
and the spiritual life has been bols- 
tered. The future of this University, 
as a molder of men and women 
steeped in the liberal arts and 
equipped with a world view that 
has the potential for reshaping soci- 
ety into a more humane and habita- 
ble place for all people, has been 

Underlying all of this, I continue 
to believe that the basic purpose of 
this University is to produce men 
and women who are free in Christ. 
These are men and women who live 
their lives up to a point as everyone 

else — men and women who experi- 
ence the same laws as all, who have 
the same desires and needs of all, 
who have to pay taxes and work 
and sleep and eat like all — men and 
women who feel pain, suffer loss, 
and do not always achieve impor- 
tant goals. Yet, within the restric- 
tions imposed upon us all, they are 
capable of doing surprising and as- 
tonishing things. They act freely. 
They speak freely. They do not 
struggle to prove freedom because 
their free acts and words are the 
very center of their being. Around 
them are hundreds of people who 
slouch through each day with no 
sense of freedom. They have sub- 
mitted to a yoke of slavery. They 
simply react to what is required; 
they buy what glamorous models 
tell them to buy; they do what 
stronger personalities tell them to 
do; they speak in whatever cliches 
the jargon of the day provides them. 
And yet, in spite of this, there are 
people who live freely, who are not 
impressed by the crowds. 

The fascinating thing about all of 
this is that the symbol that these 
people have chosen to represent the 
free life is the cross — the instru- 
ment of a cruelly determined death. 
The secret of what it means to be 
free in Christ lies in the cross.... 

What God does is to resurrect. 
The cross of Jesus is empty. The 
tomb is emptied. Christ dies and 
sets us free to die. 

The freedom to die is the climax 
of all freedom. If I no longer have to 
protect and safeguard my life, I am

free to live by faith. If I no longer 
have to justify my life, I am free to 
live by faith. If I no longer have to 
dread death, fearful that all mean- 
ing terminates in my coffin, I am 
free to live by faith. 

It is not until we are free to die 
that we are free to participate in 
the ultimate expression of God's 
freedom, resurrection.... 

Paul had a brilliant way with 
words and that gift is brilliantly 
used here: "Neither c 
counts for anything r 
sion, but a new creation." Cii 

representative words in Paul's vo- 
cabulary. As such, the two words 
represent two ways of life, both of 
which exhibit loss of freedom: the 
Jewish way that imposed a reli- 
gious ritual on all who would live 
well before God and the Greek way 
that wanted to be let loose to play 
and run and pursue happiness. In- 
terestingly enough, these two ways 
of life continue to be presented to 
us: the morally earnest person who 
would help us to get to God by load- 
ing us down with rules, procedures 
and advice; and the fun-loving, 
carefree spirit who would release us 
to fulfill our human potential in 
whatever way we feel is best. 

Our society is split today between 
these two approaches. There are 
people who are seriously trying to 
live out moral ideals and responsi- 
bilities and enlisting others in their 
program (the circumcisedl. And 
there are people who are convinced 
that their first priority is to treat 
themselves to a good time (the un- 
circumcised). They both argue for 
freedom, and culture seems to be a 
contest between the two. 

Paul refused both these alterna- 
tives. While in some ways they are 
opposites, in one significant way 
they are the same: they both refuse 
to deal with death. They are not 
free to die. They are desperate to 
hold on to life. The uncircumcised 
are desperate to snatch some happi- 

out of fleeting days: the cir- 
cumcised are desperate to preserve 
meaning in the chaos of a corrupt 
society. They are both desperate be- 
cause they both exclude God. They 
are not free to die because their own 
life is all they know and all thev 
really believe in. The one is anx- 

»ly and compulsively moral, the 
other frantically and obsessively 
happy. An untight morality, a hu- 
morless happiness. Neither is 

And so, my I' 
pleading for is 
free life in Chr 
freely offered to uS and get on with 
the true business of facing crucifix- 
ion daily, of living in true freedom 
and enjoying God. Let us give up 
the temptation to trivialize the true 
goal and the corporate life of this 
University by emphasizing second- 
ary issues and resorting to pettiness 
and jealousy to bolster our own 

Of course, we will make mistakes. 
we will suffer pain, we will fail at 
times to achieve important goals. 
Let us not claim to be free in Christ 
but then attempt to avoid difficult 
situations or unpleasant people, 
ourselves being numbered among 
the latter. A mature freedom in 
Christ is not selective, it does not 
pick and choose, it does not ignore 
the hard questions. Rather, to be 
free in Christ is to embrace, is to be 
loving and forgiving, and to be real- 
istic about other people and our- 
selves as well. To be free in Christ 
is to be gracious, to be understand- 
ing, and to be an instrument of 

If the University is to produce 
graduates of both the College and 
the Seminary who are in fact free 
men and women in Christ, then oh- 
viously such a life must be modeled 
by the administration, the faculties, 
the trustees, the regents, and the 
residents of this community. Where 
life is to be lived and God enjoyed 
fully, there is not room for wounded 
pride, bruised egos, and a paranoiac 
defense of one's turf. There must be 
mutual support and trust among all 
the various units of the University's 
life, for without it, the message of 
the free life in Christ loses its credi- 
bility. And. it is not only a question 
of the message losing its credibility, 
but it is also a question of the 
health and vitality of the institu- 
tion itself. 

Having said all of this. I need not 
remind you that Sewanee at this 
very moment has never been 
healthier or stronger. My concern is 
not only that it remain so. but that 
it be enhanced as well. I want noth- 
ing to impede our progress toward 
the goal of an ever humane institu- 
tion that seeks to live and model 
and produce graduates who are 
trulv free in Christ. 

To have served as the Chancellor 
of this University for the last six 
years has been for me an unparal- 
leled gracious honor. And, no mat- 
ter what the future may bring, to 
God be the glory in the church and 
in Christ Jesus from all ages unto 
all ages. 


First Truman Scholar 
at Sewanee 

A rising junior in the College who 
has aspirations to enter the U.S. 
Congress has become Sewanee's 
first student to win the prestigious 
Harry S. Truman Scholarship. 

Joseph M. Wiegand of Palatine, 
Illinois, jowis 101 other students in 
the nation who will receive the 
S5.000 annual award for the next 
four years — two undergraduate and 
two graduate vears of studv. 

Authorized bv Congress in 1975. 
the Truman Scholarships are 
awarded on a merit basis each year 
to college students who show poten- 
tial for leadership, academic ability, 
and an outstanding potential for a 
career in government. 

Gilbert F. Gilchrist, C'49, profes- 
sor of political science, said he has 
been expecting a Sewanee student 
to win the scholarship for several 
years. Now this year Wiegand re- 
ceives the scholarship, and John D. 
Crocker, C'87, of Jackson, Tennes- 
see, was a semifinalist. 

Wiegand has already demon- 
strated some political savvy to go 
with his goals. This spring he was 
elected speaker of the Student As- 
sembly. In high school he was presi- 
dent of Palatine's Student Council, 
and about the same time he was 
elected governor of Boys State, was 
appointed a senator of Boys Nation, 
and then was elected president of 
Boys Nation. 

For the next two summers, he 
will be working for his congress- 
man. Rep. Philip Crane, first in his 
state office and then in Washington. 

The Truman Scholarship opens 
avenues through two years of grad- 
uate school, and Wiegand said he 
plans to use those years to lay more 
ground for his pursuit of a career in 
government and public service. 

"I have thought about law school, 
but I also realize there are great de- 
mands for knowledge of technical 

fields in government," he said. 

For this reason his sights are now 
on a two-year graduate program at 
the University of Chicago in public 
policy analysis and management. 
The choice is especially good since 
Joe expects to launch his political 
career in Chicago. 

The Wiegand family moved to 
Palatine (northwest of Chicago) 
from Southern California in 1981. 
On July 4 of that year, the Wie- 
gands began a tour across the coun- 
try in a red, white, and blue trailer. 
They stopped in 160 cities and 
towns in twenty-two states and in 
the process collected messages for 
President Reagan. 

"It was a time of rising patriot- 
ism, and the messages reflected 
that." said Joe, who did all the "ad- 
vance work" by planning stops at 
special city and community events 
along the way. Because of the trip, 
the family also experienced a pa- 
triotic reawakening. They arrived 
in Washington on September 17, 
Citizenship Day, and delivered the 
messages, although the president 
was away on a trip. 

Joe's father, James Wiegand. is a 
comedian and political satirist 
whose base is now Chicago, and Joe 
said he hopes his father will give a 
performance in Sewanee next year. 

In his brief two years on the 
Mountain. Joe Wiegand has been a 
member of the varsity cross country 
team and has held offices in his 
fraternity. Beta Theta Pi. In addi- 
tion to being a member of the Stu- 
dent Assembly, he is a member of 
the Order of Gownsmen and is a 
dean's list student. 

He became acquaintedwith Se- 
wanee through his high school 
counselor in California, Wayne Cra- 
thorne, C'61, whom Joe credits with 
influencing him to pursue a career 
in public service. 

Frank Hahn, a fellow at Churchill College, Cambridge, makes a point 
during the Sewanee Economics Symposium in April. Seated from fore- 
ground are Martin Weitzman of MIT: WUfred Beckerman, a fellow of 
Balliol College. Oxford, and the 1985 Kennedy Distinguished Professor 
at Sewanee; and Arthur Schaefer. professor of economics and University 
provost. More than a dozen leading economists from the United States 
and Europe presented papers at the symposium. 

NSF Research Grant 

Laurie Jarrett. C'85, ofBlacksburg. Virginia, and Jim Folds, C86, of 
Chapel Hill. North Carolina, have been serving as student trustees. 

Ronald B. Toll, assistant professor 
of biology, has recently been 
awarded a grant from the National 
Science Foundation — $45,000 to be 
used over the next three years — to 
conduct additional studies of the 
morphology, classification, and evo- 
lution of octopods. 

The funds are provided through a 
new NSF program entitled "Re- 
search in Undergraduate Institu- 
tions." Funds under this program 
are specifically designated to sup- 
port faculty research with the in- 
volvement of undergraduate 


The Black Student's Guide to Col- 
leges, edited by Brown University 
Professor Barry Beckham, recently 
recognized Sewanee as one often 
predominantly white colleges offer- 
ing the best climate for black 

Some of the other institutions sin- 
gled out as providing outstanding 
academic opportunities for black 
students are Oberlin, Stanford, 
Agnes Scott, Ohio State, the service 
academies, Brown, Rensselaer, St. 
Joseph's (Philadelphia), and Wes- 

students at primarily undergradu- 
ate institutions. 

Large graduate and research uni- 
versities have an enormous advan- 
tage over undergraduate colleges in 
securing their share of the 
hundreds of thousands of dollars of 
federal monies available for re- 
search annually. The new program 
is an important addition to the edu- 
cation and research scene at institu- 
tions such as Sewanee. 

Professor Toll said he anticipates 
that Five to eight students will be 
involved in all phases of his re- 
search during the grant period. 

leyan (Connecticut). 

USA TODAY, a national daily 
newspaper, also highlighted the rat- 
ings in a recent article on minority 
educational opportunities. 

Since the beginning of the Minor- 
ity Student* Affairs Program four 
years ago, minority enrollment has 
grown from only two minority stu- 
dents in 1981 to thirty-three stu- 
dents (twenty-eight blacks) this 
year. Some fifteen minority stu- 
dents are expected to be in next 
fall's entering freshman class. 


Oxford Ties Strengthened 

The University and Hertford Col- 
lege, Oxford, have initiated a new 
and very special program, which 
each year will allow two or three 
juniors to study a full year at the 
University of Oxford. 

The Sewanee in Oxford Program 
is unusual because the Sewanee 
students will have all the privileges 
of matriculating undergraduates at 
Hertford College. The agreement al- 
lows for the participation of two un- 
dergraduates, but this year three 
were submitted for consideration 
and all three were accepted by 

They are Terry Walton, C'87, of 
Oxford, Mississippi, who will study 
physics; Van C. Kussrow, C'87, of 

Hendersonville, North Carolina, 
who will studv history and politics; 
and Robert A. McKeon, C'87, of 
Boston, Massachusetts, who will 
study politics, history, and philoso- 
phy. Each will have tutors in major 
and minor Fields and will attend lec- 
tures on the advice of the tutors. 
They will eat in the commons room 
and have other undergraduate 

Details of the agreement were 
worked out last June during a visit 
to Hertford by Provost Arthur 
Schaefer and Jacqueline Schaefer, 
professor of French and coordinator 
of foreign study. The way had been 
paved by Aubrey Silverston, last 
year's Kennedy Distinguished Pro- 

fessor of Economics. 

"These arrangements are very 
special because it is unusual for a 
college at Oxford to integrate a vis- 
iting undergraduate student into 
the system," said Mrs. Schaefer. 
"We are also very pleased because 
in searching for candidates, we real- 
ized we had three excellent stu- 
dents, and when we submitted all 
three, all three were accepted." 

She said that she knows that 
Hertford has accepted only eight 
undergraduates from abroad and 
that of five from the United States, 
three are from Sewanee. The next 
year Hertford will be able to accept 
only five undergraduates from 

To help the students become ori- 
ented to Hertford, the college has 
designated a senior fellow to serve 
as advisor. He is Geoffrey Ellis, who 
has lectured at Sewanee. 

Professor Schaefer said she and 
others are working to develop more 
opportunities such as the Hertford 
College Program not only at the un- 
dergraduate level but also at the 
graduate level. 

Hertford College, which is cele- 
brating its 700th anniversary, is lo- 
cated at the heart of Oxford next to 
the Bodleian, the principal univer- 
sity library for the arts and social 
sciences. Cultural opportunities ate 
close at hand. 

First Watson Fellowships 

Added only this year to the list of 
colleges whose students are eligible 
for the Thomas J. Watson Fellow- 
ship, Sewanee has been honored by 
having two graduating seniors 
awarded grants for study abroad. 

The fellowship winners are Mich- 
ele Bambling, C'85, a fine arts ma- 
jor from Easton, Maryland, and 
Arnold Frishman, C'85, a political 
science major from Meridian, Mis- 
sissippi. Each will receive $10,000 
for the year. 

Bambling will travel and study 
traditional art in Japan. She has 
previously been to Japan to study 
and was one of the first Sewanee 
students to study in an all-Japanese 

Frishman will use his fellowship 
to study Jewish communities in Eu- 
rope and Israel. 

The Thomas J. Watson Fellow- 
ship Program is a national competi- 
tion which supports independent 

study and travel abroad for recent 
college graduates. Fellows are se- 
lected on the basis of their commit- 
ment to a particular field of interest 
and their potential for leadership 
within it. 

The University of the South be- 
came this year one of the only fifty 
institutions nationwide that are 
permitted to participate, and only 
seventy fellowships were awarded 
for 1985. Each university or college 
is allowed to nominate no more 
than four students a year; therefore, 
the acceptance of two candidates 
the first year is considered by the 
faculty to be a special achievement. 

The Thomas J. Watson Founda- 
tion, which administers the pro- 
gram, is a charitable trust 
established in 1961 by the late Mrs. 
Thomas J. Watson, Sr., in memory 
of her husband, the founder of In- 
ternational Business Machines 

Rice Opens SSMC Season 

Visitors to the Mountain this sum- 
mer will have opportunities to at- 
tend concerts of the Sewanee 
Summer Music Center beginning 
with the opening "Pops Concert" on 
June 23 and ending with the Festi- 
val weekend July 25-28. 

A very special guest at the open- 
ing concert will be mezzo- soprano 
Laura Brooks Rice, whose opera ca- 
reer soared after she won Metropoli- 
tan Opera auditions in 1981. That 
same year she joined the San Fran- 
cisco Opera Company where she has 
performed on numerous occasions 
and where she will be performing 

until shortly before her appearance 
in Sewanee. 

Miss Rice is the daughter of Louis 
W. Rice, Jr., C'50, a member of the 
Board of Regents and a Century II 
Campaign officer, and Ellen Kirby- 
Smith Rice, who also has numerous 
Sewanee connections. Her brother, 
Louis W. Rice III, C'73, is the direc- 
tor of planned giving at Sewanee.

Music Center concert schedule may 
be obtained by writing to Martha 
McCrory, SSMC director, Sewanee,

Daniel B. Rather of Atlanta presides over the spring meeting of the Sewa 
nee Parents Council. More than thirty members of the council met April 
19 and 20 in Sewanee to discuss ways that parents can better assist the

dates offered admission, was held the same weekend.

Once feared by seafarers and believed to be of 
proportions sufficiently gigantic to bring great 
sailing ships to their watery graves, octopuses 
are now known to be rather shy and retiring ani- 
mals, generally wary of man. While one species 
can in fact reach a size of thirty feet from arm tip 
to arm tip, the majority of the 150 species of octo- 
puses range from only a few inches to under 
three feet. Octopuses and their close relatives, 
the squids (which can reach lengths of over sixty 
feet!), are exclusively marine animals and found 
abundantly in all of the world's oceans. Classi- 
fied by scientists as mollusks, they are placed in 
this phylum along with the clams and snails. 

Representing a drastic departure from our 
stereotypic conceptions of invertebrate animals 
(those without backbones), octopuses are ac- 
tually highly specialized and evolutionary ad- 
vanced animals with complex nervous systems, 
sensory structures, and behavioral repertoires. 
Experimental laboratory culture of these fasci- 
nating marine creatures has recently been begun 
at Sewanee under the direction of Ronald B. Toll, 
assistant professor of biology and a trained bio- 
logical oceanographer, and his student assistant, 
Charles Strain of Alabama, C'87. Dr. Toll's re- 
search concerns the rapidly expanding use of oc- 
topuses in a wide range of pure and applied 
research programs on neuroanatomy and physi- 
ology, vision, behavior, and pharmacology, that 
are now being conducted world-wide. Much of 
this research is biomedically oriented with direct 
application to the human condition. 

The complexity of the nervous system of ce- 
phalopods (squids and octopuses) rivals that of 
mammals, including man. Octopuses have been 
"taught" to recognize shapes and textures using 
the same punishment/reward methods applied to 
rats and primates. Octopuses have large, paired 
eyes with slit-like pupils. Their visual acuity is 
good and the literature contains reports of octo- 
puses which recognized and approached their 

feeder while shunning all other visitors to their 

Perhaps their most spectacular ability is that 
of color change. By selectively altering the size of 
thousands of tiny pigment sacs with the use of 
tiny muscles located in the skin, octopuses can 
alter their coloration from pale white to deep 
chocolate brown in a matter of milliseconds. 
Specialized color patterns signal particular 
moods and are used in courtship and territorial 
displays. Similar fine muscular control can ele- 
vate papillae on the skin, breaking up the 
smooth body outline and contributing to camou- 
flage. No less interesting is watching the numer- 
ous suckers located along each of the eight arms 
as they manipulate food, sense the world as fin- 
gers might do, and allow the animal to pull him- 
self along the aquarium glass. 

Octopuses are highly active metabolically. 
They have rapid growth rates and relatively 
short life spans. Accurate field data concerning 
these two important life history parameters are 
scant but suggest octopuses become sexually ma- 
ture and reproduce at one to two years of age- 
Under artificial conditions established in the 
laboratory this process can be shortened, allow- 
ing scientists to produce several generations of 
octopuses a year. Because of their rapid growth 
rates and metabolism, octopuses are difficult to 
maintain and culture in the laboratory. The ani- 
mals can quickly foul their water with an excess 
of their own excretory waste products. Likewise, 
they can deplete the dissolved oxygen. Further- 
more, their diet requires a large and continuous 
supply of live marine prey, principally crabs and 

Scientists working at the Marine Biomedical 

Institute of the University of Texas recently suc- 
ceeded in developing a small scale (100 gallons) 
recirculating seawater system specially designed 
for octopus maintenance and culture. Working 
along with these scientists, Dr. Toll has duplica- 
ted this system. This same research institute has 
donated octopuses for research at Sewanee. 

Current octopus research at the University of 
the South concerns an alternative to the need for 
live marine prey to suppprt proper growth and 
development of animals in culture. The need for 
such a particular diet has largely restricted the 
opportunities to study octopuses to coastal uni- 
versities and marine laboratories where suitable 
prey can be collected on a daily basis. At Sewa- 
nee, the use of freshwater and terrestrial food 
items is being investigated as a suitable alterna- 
tive diet for octopuses in culture. Thus far, the 
results of Dr. Toll's research suggest that growth 
of adult octopuses can be sustained on a varied 
diet of crayfish, sunfish, salamanders, earth- 
worms, insect larvae, and snails, all plentifully 
available on the Domain, Professor Toll and his 
assistant have succeededjin keeping a Pacific oc- 
topus alive, well, and grojwing for over two 
months with such a diet. 

The octopus, known to science as Octopus bi- 
maculoides is better knovp to Dr. Toll, his stu- 
dent assistant, and the administration, faculty, 
and students of the University as Otto. Otto ar- 
rived at Sewanee in late February following a 
long and involved transcontinental journey. Col- 
lected in Los Angeles Bay, he first was air 
shipped to Galveston, Texas, where he was main- 
tained for several months'. Travel to Sewanee in- 
volved a second daylong airplane flight from 
Houston to Chattanooga ^ia Atlanta. The day 
ended with a nighttime car ride up the moun- 
tain. To make the journey, Otto had been placed 
in a triple-layered plastic bag filled with cool 
seawater. This was put in an insulated styro- 
foam cooler and finally ina corrugated shipping 

At the present time, Ottjo is doing extremely 
well and gaining weight steadily. For those who 
work most closely with him. Otto has seemed to 
develop a distinct personality. He enjoys his 
meals at regular times and dislikes intrusions of 
any kind. His latest trick is to squirt a stream of 
water from his funnel out of his tank and aimed 
at anyone who would dare to disrupt his after- 

i nap

Otto's culture facility is housed in a small, 
basement room in Woods. While space is 
cramped, the room has certain advantages. 
There are no windows, so lighting can be care- 
fully controlled with the use of timers. Also the 
room is in a lightly trafficked area to reduce 
noise. Two students share Otto's room as a study 
area. Dr. Toll feels their presence is an asset to 
the project as it provides almost constant surveil- 
lance of the numerous pumps, hoses, filters, and 
wires that contribute to the maintenance of Ot- 
to's specialized environment. The students are 
under strict orders to call Dr. Toll at his home at 
any hour if an emergency should occur. Luckily 
that has happened only twice, and in both cases 
the minor problems were immediately dealt with 
and rectified. 

Otto's student roommates have only one com- 
plaint. They find themselves fascinated by him 
and spend precious study time watching his 
graceful, fluid movements and spectacular be- 
havioral displays. Rumor has it that a chemistry 
major takes a regular nocturnal constitutional, 
interrupting his studying to take a brief trip to 
Otto's room, and then returns to the second floor. 
In addition to daily feeding and weekly weighing 
of Otto, a rigorous routine of maintenance tech- 
niques and procedures is used to recreate the 
natural marine environment in the laboratory. 
These involve a wide array of apparatus and a 
thorough knowledge of marine ecology and water 
chemistry. The constantly recirculating seawater 
is itself artificial, prepared from a commercially 
available sea salts mixture combined with spe- 
cially purified tap water. After each daily feed- 
ing period, uneaten food remains must be 
removed to prevent the growth of unwanted mi- 
crobial organisms. Twice weekly, a sample of 
water is removed from the system and chemi- 
cally analyzed to determine the quantity of 
waste products and the overall acidity. Chemical 
adjustments are made when necessary by the ad- 
dition of selected compounds. 

The total seawater environment is actually 
contained in two large (55 gallons) standard 
glass aquaria in direct connection by a pump and 
syphon return system. One tank serves as the 
living quarters for octopuses in culture. The 
other functions as the water purification tank. In 
the latter are located three completely different 
types of water purification systems, each run- 
ning continuously, twenty-four hours a day. An 
ultra-violet sterilizer bombards the water with 
radiation, killing unwanted protozoans (single- 
celled animals), bacteria, and viral and fungal 
agents. The growth of certain other beneficial 
bacteria is actually encouraged and plays a cru- 
cial role in the detoxification of waste products. 
These bacteria live and grow in a layer of 
crushed oyster shell located on the bottom of the 
water purification tank. These desirable and nec- 
essary microbes chemically convert highly toxic 
ammonia, the natural waste product of octo- 
puses, into less harmful nitrites and nitrates. 
Standard outside aquarium filters like those 
used by home aquarists mechanically remove 
particulate debris and absorb impurities. Air is 
constantly introduced as a stream of bubbles to 
replenish oxygen and carry away carbon dioxide. 
Finally, a heat exchanger (cooling coil) similar to 
those found in refrigerators helps to keep the 
water at a constant temperature of about 19 de- 
grees centigrade (66 Ft. Even with such complex 
procedures and equipment, routine maintenance 
includes removal and replacement of 25 percent 
of the total water volume every four to six 
weeks. This not only rids the system of excess 
wastes, but also adds a new supply of essential 
trace elements which would be found in natural 

Dr. Toll's success with Otto, the first octopus to 
be maintained at Sewanee. is nothing short of 
phenomenal. It represents the first time any- 
where in the world that an octopus has been 
maintained on a diet composed exclusively of 
freshwater food items for any appreciable 
amount of time. 

As he explains, the value of Dr. Toll's research 
is several fold. First, development of an exclu- 
sively freshwater and terrestrial diet for octo- 
puses in culture would promote their widespread 

use as research and teaching models at inland 
facilities such as Sewanee by increasing the ease 
by which they can be maintained. For example, a 
neurophysiologist may now be more able to 
maintain octopuses in his or her own laboratory 
where they are always available rather than 
needing to take his elaborate equipment to a 
coastal lab. Scientists at inland facilities who 
had wanted to use octopuses in their research 
but did not because of the difficulty of providing | 
food for them might now begin investigating 
their maintenance. Also, numerous universities 
and colleges could maintain these fascinating 
animals, exposing more persons to their splen- 
dor. Finally, the cost of culturing octopuses at 
institutions might decrease by making a 
wider varietv of more readilv accessible food' 
items available. Dr. Tolls own plans call for' 
breeding octopuses through their entire life cycle 
at Sewanee, thereby making available a steady 
supply of animals for studies of growth, develop- 
ment, and regeneration of lost body parts, and 
detailed morphological examination as a part of 
his ongoing studies of octopus evolution and

Using an APPLE to 
Study an Apple 

by Francis X. Hart 

The measurement of the electrical properties of 
biological materials is a subject which has at- 
tracted considerable interest in recent years. 
There is, unfortunately, a tendency to regard the 
topic as "spooky" or "paraphysical." I would like 
to begin this description of my research by indi- 
cating what I am not doing. I am not studying 
any signals emitted by plants, provoked or un- 
provoked. I am not trying to determine whether 
electricity is harmful or beneficial to plants. I am 
merely trying to measure certain material prop- 
erties which plants possess in common with all 

The properties are related to the ways in 
which a material either stores or transmits elec- 
trical charges. If I were to connect a flashlight 
battery to either a silicon chip or an apple, elec- 
trical charges would tend to flow from one termi- 

nal to the other. Some would be trapped or stored 
along the way; others would successfully com- 
plete the journey. The capacitance of an object is 
a measure of its ability to store charge; the con- 
ductance, to transport charge. 

In addition to the direct current electricity pro- 
duced by batteries, we are all familiar with the 
alternating current electricity obtained from the 
wall outlets in our homes. The direction of this 
current flow continually changes. Sixty times 
every second the current flow peaks in one direc- 
tion. The alternating current generated for Euro- 
pean homes peaks fifty times every second. The 
number of peaks per second is called the fre- 
quency of the signal. In addition to the fifty and 
sixty cycle signals which transmit power to 
homes, many other frequencies are in common 
use. For example, long-wave marine communica- 
tions signals have frequencies on the order of one 
thousand cycles per second; AM radio, one mil- 
lion cycles per second; microwave ovens, one bil- 
lion cycles per second. 

The capacitance and conductance of many ma- 
terials depend on the frequency of the electrical 
signal applied to them. The goal of my present 
research is to study the variation of these proper- 
ties with frequency for biological materials — 
plant organs in particular. Such information is 
important to people who investigate the biologi- 
cal effects of electromagnetic fields. 

In recent years many researchers have re- 
ported that low-level electric and magnetic fields 
may produce a wide variety of biological effects. 
The mechanisms responsible for these effects are 
not understood. National standards are being de- 
veloped for exposure limits to these fields at ra- 
dio and microwave frequencies. At much lower 
frequencies state regulatory agencies are estab- 
lishing minimal rights of way near very high 
voltage transmission line arrays to reduce expo- 
sure to the accompanying electric and magnetic 
fields. An important question in this regard is 
how the fields produced inside a person by a ra- 
dio transmitter or a power line array compare to 
the levels in the surrounding air. This question 
cannot be answered unless the variations of tis- 
sue capacitance and conductance with frequency 
are known. On a more fundamental level, a de- 
tailed understanding of the ways in which the 
stored and transported charge interact with the 
surrounding tissue seems necessary before the 
mechanisms for the effects of low level fields on 
biological systems can be understood. Measure- 
ment of the variation of tissue capacitance and

the physics laboratory. (Photo: Latham Dauis) 

conductance with frequency is required for such 
an understanding. 

My research involves the use of an APPLE mi- 
crocomputer to measure these electrical proper- 
ties. The APPLE is used as a laboratory 
instrument to collect and store data. A machine 
language program throws a digital switch to ap- 
ply a voltage step to a biological material, for ex- 
ample an apple. The current which flows 
through the apple as a result is sampled every 
fifty microseconds and stored in the microcompu- 
ter memory. The voltages appearing at the posi- 
tive and negative electrodes are also measured. 
Two hundred fifty-six such readings are taken 
with this time interval. The procedure is contin- 
ued for time intervals of two and one-half milli- 
seconds and one-eighth second. The program 
then throws a second digital switch to discharge 
the material while similar sets of readings are 
taken again. The data in the APPLE memory 
are then transferred to a floppy disc and later 
sent to the University's 3000 Series 48 minicom- 
puter for further analysis. A mathematical pro- 
cedure known as a Fourier Transformation 
converts the changes in current and voltage with 
time to the desired variations of the material's 
capacitance and conductance with frequency. 
The statistical analysis and plotting packages in 
the Hewlett Packard make the analysis and dis- 
play of the results convenient. 

A reasonable question at this stage would be, 
"Why plants?". Many of the experiments de- 
signed to determine actual dosages or study the 
basic mechanisms for the bioeffects are per- 
formed on animals such as rats. It would seem 
that the measurement of the electrical properties 
of animal tissue would be more useful. Animal 
systems, however, are more complicated than 
plant systems. Pulsating blood flow, for example, 
makes steady measurements difficult in living 
animal systems. In addition, a great many physi- 
cal parameters must be regulated to provide a 
controlled environment. For these reasons re- 
producibility of results has been difficult to 
achieve. A schefflera or an apple is simpler than 
a rat. Growing plants in an hydroponic environ- 
ment with individually controlled nutrient sup- 
ply systems has allowed me to obtain very 
reproducible" results. 

At present I am investigating how the choice 
of electrode material affects the measured elec- 
trical properties of apples. Many of the results 
may be applied to the selection of electrodes for 
use with animal systems. I have also shown that 
the variation of plant stem capacitance and con- 
ductance with frequency is similar to that ob- 
served by other researchers for bone and for 
inorganic fast ion conductors. Thus, the charge 

storage and transport processes in these two 
biomaterials are closely related to those in cer- 
tain non-biological systems. Models used to ex- 
plain the electrical properties of these inorganic 
materials may shed light on the origin of the bio- 
logical effects of low level electric fields. 

Many students have assisted me with my re- 
search on this and other projects over the years: 
Alan Biddle, Al Little, Roger Farrow, Ralph 
James, Steve Massey, Roy Schottenfeld, Anthony 
Atchley, Mark Mudano, Hope Hurlbut and 
David Brumgard. Some of these students have 
co-authored papers in professional journals with 
me. Student participation in the research contin- 
ues to be important. The "handshaking" program 
which allows me to transfer data from the AP- 
PLE computer to the University's Hewlett Pack- 
ard was written by a music and mathematics 
major, Michael Winslett. Howard Jetmundsen 
has assisted me with computer interfacing. Of 
particular help has been Warren Coleman who 
has collected and transferred most of the data on 
apples this year. I believe that an important part 
of the "Sewanee Experience" is the opportunity 
for faculty and undergraduate students to work 
together in areas of common interest. My re- 
search project is just one example of what takes 
place in many other ways in Sewanee. 

There are many handicaps to research at a 
small college. These are well known and I will 
not belabor them. I would like instead to empha- 
size a real advantage — the ability to consult eas- 
ily with colleagues in other disciplines. I have 
been most grateful to Larry Jones in biology, Jeff 
Tassin and Ed Kirven in chemistry, John Bor- 
dley and Clay Ross in computer science, and to 
Jack Lorenz and Eric Ellis in physics for their 
help and patience over the years. I would partic- 
ularly like to express thanks to the one person 
without whom all experimental research in 
Woods Lab would grind immediately to a halt — 
Bud Sutherland, the shop manager. Finally, I 
would like to acknowledge the financial support 
provided to me over the years by the University 
Research Grants Committee and the Research 

Frank Hart, professor of physics, has been 
teaching at Sewanee since 1967. In the 1970s, he 
began experiments on plants and mathematical 
modeling of the interaction of electrical fields 
with biological systems. After a sabbatical year in 
England as a visiting research fellow at the Uni- 
versity ofSalford, he developed a system of using 
a micro-computer to measure electrical properties 
of biological materials. In 1982 he received a 
grant from the Research Corporation to continue 
this study. 

Douglas Paschall of the English de- 
partment has served during 1984- 
1985 as editor of a new journal, 
Touchstone, published by the Ten- 
nessee Committee for the Humani- 
ties of which Paschall is a member. 
The journal, conceived and designed 
by Dr. Paschall, is intended not 
only to keep readers in Tennessee 
informed about the work of the Ten- 
nessee Committee for the Humani- 
ties, but also to address a wide 
range of issues and topics in the hu- 
manities which are of special signif- 
icance to Tennesseans. Touchstone 
is published three times a year and 
is available to readers at no sub- 
scription or mailing charge from 
P.O. Box 24767, Nashville 37202. 

The issues to date have concen- 
trated respectively on local history, 
historic and neighborhood preserva- 
tion, humanities issues in the Third 
World, and issues involving govern- 
ment and public policy. Touchstone 
has published interviews with Sen- 
ator Albert Gore, Jr., Secretary of 
Labor Bill Brock, writers Peter Tay- 
lor, H'72, and John Egerton, and 
historic preservation expert Joseph 
Herndon, C'69. Other Sewanee con- 
tributors to Touchstone have been 
Charles Brockett (political science). 
Thomas Spaccarelli (Spanish), and 
Don K. DuPree. 

Professor Paschall is also editing 
a major new anthology of works by 
living Tennessee writers, to be pub- 
lished in 1986 bv the Tennessee 
Arts Commission and the Univer- 
sity of Tennessee Press to coincide 
with celebrations of Tennessee 
Homecoming '86. Composed mainly 
of fiction and poetry, the anthology 
will feature work by some sixty-five 
writers, including Andrew Lytle, 
Peter Taylor, Shelbv Foote. Richard 
Tillinghast, Alan Cheuse, Wvatt 
Prunty, Don Keck DuPree, H. T. 
Kirby-Smith, and Paul Ramsey 
among writers with Sewanee con- 
nections. Editorial assistant for the 
project is Thomas McConnell, C'84. 

Leslie Richardson, instructor in 
Italian, is one of nineteen teachers 
of Italian in the United States se- 
lected to participate in the U.S. De- 
partment of Education's 1985 
Fulbright Seminar on History and 
Culture in Italy. The seminar lasts 
from June 16 to July 28. The group 
will be based for most of that time 
in Perugia, where they will attend 
lectures in the morning and visit 
the northern Italian towns of Ve- 
rona, Vicenza, Padua, Venice, Rim- 
ini, Milan, and Ferrara on 
weekends. At the end of the session, 
each participant will present a proj- 
ect to a panel of instructors. 

Pamela Royston, assistant professor 
of English, will be a summer fellow 
at the Dartmouth Dante Institute 
from June 30 through August 10. 
Supported by a grant from the Na- 

tional Endowment for the Humani- 
ties, the Institute selects a group of 
twenty to thirty teacher/scholars 
from such disciplines as art history, 
classics, comparative literature, 
English, history, philosophy, and 
religion to read The Dunne Comedy 
from a variety of perspectives under 
the guidance of leading Dante spe- 
cialists. The 1985 topic of the insti- 
tute is Dante's theory of language. 
Scholars in residence will include 
Robert Kaske, Robert Hollander, 
and John Freccero. 

Suzi Gablik, who has twice served 
as a visiting professor of fine arts at 
Sewanee, is the author of a provoca- 
tive study of contemporary art enti- 
tled Has Modernism Foiled? (New 
York: Thames and Hudson, 1984). 
In the New York Times Book Re- 
view Eugene Victor Thaw wrote 
that "the particular point of view 
Miss ( Jablik reiterates is the failure 
of modern art and, indeed, of mod- 
ern man, because of too much free- 
dom, individualism, and self- 

A regular contributor to the peri- 
odical Art in America, Suzi Gablik 
argues that art has become in some 
wavs a victim of its own success. 
With a "two-billion-dollar-a-year 
art market in New York alone," art 
and artists have been "breeding like 
bacteria under favorable condi- 
tions." The bureaucracy of curators, 
dealers, and foundation officials has 
likewise grown. Innovation in style 
and content has reached the point 
at which the possibility of a star- 
tling breakthrough seems unlikely. 
Even the work of those engaged in 
social protest — such as the subway 
"graffiti artists" — has become 

In the meantime, she sees a des- 
perate need to recover for art and 
for the general culture a sense of co- 
herence, a usable historical tradi- 
tion, an adequate moral framework, 
and a spiritual content which gives 
expression to the human yearning 
for transcendence. An unsettling 
book — Thaw calls it a "jeremiad" — 
it challenges the reader to look 
more closely not only at contempo- 
rary art but at the ironies and con- 
tradictions of Western civilization. 

A good deal of favorable attention 
has been given this spring to the 
Selected Letters of John Crowe Ran- 
som, edited by Thomas Daniel 
Young and George Core (Baton 
Rouge: Louisiana State University 
Press, 1985). Young, Gertrude Con- 
away Vanderbilt Professor of Eng- 
lish at Vanderbilt University, is the 
author of a highly regarded biog- 
raphy of Ransom. Core, adjunct pro- 
fessor of English at the University, 
is the editor of the Sewanee Review. 
The letters, which span the years 
1911-68, throw light not only on 

Ransom, an eminent critic and edi- 
tor as well as a significant poet, but 
also on the coming of age of South- 
ern and American literature in the 
twentieth century. 

Publishers Weekly observed about 
Ransom: "For all his insistence on 
clarity of thinking as a critic, he 
was, as Young and Core insist in 
their thoughtful introduction, a 
man who put life before art, senti- 
ment before logic." The letters to 
bis "almost lifelong friend," Allen 
Tate, "are chiefly notable for their 
sustained, rigorous, and often bril- 
liant discussion of poetic theory and 
practice." Robert Phillips, in his re- 
view of the volume in the New York 
Times Book Review, called attention 
to the continuing interest in Ran- 
som: "This is heartening, since few 
twentieth-century American liter- 
ary figures were as original or in- 
fluential — not to mention 

Alumni and friends of Sewanee 
will be interested in glimpses of 
Ransom's native Middle Tennessee, 
Oxford University before the first 
World War, Vanderbilt University 
between the wars, and Kenyon Col- 
lege, where Ransom founded and 
edited the Kenyan Review. Above 

all, they will enjoy the spirited and 
outspoken letters Ransom wrote to 
Allen Tate, who became editor of 
the Sewanee Review in 1944. Ran- 
som recommended Tate for this po- 
sition to Vice-Chancellor Alexander 
Guerry in terms which suggest the 
values held dear by all three: "He 
believes in old-fashioned educa- 
tional ideals, he is the soul of honor, 
he has the most precise scholarship 
and studies without stint when he 
comes upon the subject that he has 
not yet mastered, and he is about 
the best master of written English 
that we have in this country." Ran- 
som added, somewhat prophetically: 
"I think he would make the Sewa- 
nee Review, our rival organ, flourish 
with a distinction second to that of 

Other stimulating letters are to 
fellow Southern writers and schol- 
ars such as Robert Penn Warren, 
Cleanth Brooks, Andrew Lytle, and 
Monroe K. Spears. Like Tate, both 
Lytle and Spears served, of course, 
as editors of the Sewanee Review. It 
is pleasant to read Ransom's en- 
couraging words to "Andy" Lytle in 
1942 about the latter's story "Al- 
chemy": "It's about as clean a piece 
of good narrative as I ever saw."

on Faculty 

Soon after the resignation of Dean 
John Booty this spring, it was an- 
nounced that he would remain on 
the faculty and return to Sewanee 
after a year of research and teach- 
ing at the Yale Divinity School. The 
announcement was made with en- 
thusiasm by Vice-Chancellor Ayres 
to the University community and 
the Board of Trustees. 

During the 1985-86 academic 
year. Dean Booty will be a visiting 
professor of Church history and a 
research fellow at the Divinity 
School of Yale University. Although 
he will do some teaching, his pri- 
mary goal is to write. 

He is working on two books, a bi- 
ography of Stephen Bayne and a 
new history of the Episcopal 
Church. In addition he is compiling 
material for the Folger Library edi- 
tion of the Works of Richard 
Hooker, which is being published by 
the Harvard University Press. 

When he returns to Sewanee, 
Dean Booty will continue his re- 
search and writing, and he wants to 
establish at Sewanee an Institute of 
Theological Research, which he has 
said he considers to be a much 
needed resource for the Church. 

He will continue to speak at 
clergy conferences and retreats and 
to accept preaching engagements 
for the benefit of the Church and as 
an aid to church relations for the 
University. He will be available to 
teach in the areas of Anglican stud- 
ies. Church history, spirituality, 
and religion and literature, while 
counseling students, serving on 
committees, and being involved 
where needed. 


During the recent trustees meeting, 
the University dedicated a statue 
and two choir stalls in All Saints' 

A statue of the Rt. Rev. Stephen 
Elliott, the first bishop of Georgia 
and the third Chancellor of the Uni- 
versity, was given by the Diocese of 
Georgia and presented to the Uni- 
versity by the Rt. Rev. Harry W. 
Shipps, bishop of Georgia. 

A choir stall in memory of John 
Charles Stewart, C'51, and a stall 
in honor of his wife, Rachel W. 
Stewart, were given by their moth- 
ers and mothers-in-law and pre- 
sented to the University by the Rt. 
Rev. Rogers Harris, suffragan 
bishop of Upper South Carolina.

Edna Evans 

Edna Evans retired this spring 
after sixteen years of teaching hom- 
iletics, Christian education, mis- 
sion, and evangelism at the School 
of Theology. 

Her new home is in Port St. Lucy, 

In her honor, the School of Theol- 
ogy declared May 8 Edna Evans 
Day and celebrated her ministry 
and teaching at Sewanee in several 

The homiletics room is to be 
named in her honor, and a plaque to 
be placed in the room was presented 
to her by the students. The faculty 
had a dinner for her that night. In 
addition she was presented with a 
St. Luke's Cross, making her an 
honorary alumna of the University. 

Among her activities at the Semi- 
nary, Edna Evans chaired the mis- 
sion committee, which is a primary 
outreach of the School of Theology. 

Conrmittee Begins Search 
for Dean 

A committee of fifteen members, 
representing a broad spectrum of 
the Episcopal Church and the 
School of Theology constituency, 
has been working this spring to- 
ward the selection of a new Semi- 
nary dean to replace the Very Rev. 
John E. Booty. 

Dean Booty announced his resig- 
nation earlier this year and has 
since announced his intention to re- 
turn to teach at Sewanee after a 
year of study and teaching at Yale 
Divinity School. 

The search committee is an advi- 
sory committee and consists of some 
of the same members who served on 
the committee that assisted in the 
search that brought Dean Booty to 
the Mountain in 1982. The Rt. Rev. 
Duncan M. Gray, Jr., bishop of Mis- 
sissippi, has agreed once again to be 
its chairman. 

An initial meeting on April 9, es- 
sentially an organizational meet- 
ing, was followed by a series of - 
meetings during the week of April 
28. when the Seminary Alumni 
Council, the Board of Regents, and 
the Board of Trustees were all in 
session. Meetings were also held 
that week with members of the fac- 
ulty and with students. 

Nominations are being sought in 
several ways: through direct com- 
munication with bishops and other 
church leaders and advertisements 
in the Living Church and the£pt5- 
copalian. At the April 9 meeting, 

Bishop Gray had already received 
the names of seventeen nominees or 
prospective nominees. 

The committee has not set a 
schedule of deadlines but has, in the 
words of Tom Watson, the acting 
Seminary administrator and com- 
mittee member, "determined to 
move with resolve" in its search. 
The summer will likely be spent 
gathering more nominations and 
screening applications. The commit- 
tee expects to narrow down the list 
of nominees to a group of six to ten 
persons who will be interviewed in 
Atlanta, similar to the procedures 
used three years ago. The final can- 
didates, perhaps three, will then be 
nominated to the Vice-Chancellor 
and brought to Sewanee for inter- 
views. The Vice-Chancellor makes 
his recommendation to the Board of 

The Rev. Donald S. Armentrout, 
professor of ecclesiastical history, 
will serve as acting dean until the 
new dean is able to assume his du- 
ties, which may be as early as Janu- 
ary 1986 but perhaps not until the 
beginning of the 1986-87 academic 

In addition to Bishop Gray, the 
chairman, members of the commit- 
tee include the Rt. Rev. C. Fitz- 
Simons Allison, bishop of South 
Carolina; the Rt. Rev. Furman C. 
Stough, bishop of Alabama and for- 
mer Chancellor of the University; 
the Rt. Rev. William G. Weinhauer, 

bishop of Western North Carolina; 
the Rev. Donald S. Armentrout; the 
Rev. Christopher Bryan, professor 
of New Testament studies at the 
School of Theology; the Rev. Sister 
Lucy L. Shetters of the Community 
of Saint Mary at St. Mary's Convent 
and Retreat Center; the Rev. 
Thomas Hill Carson, Jr., of Paw- 
ley's Island, South Carolina, the ex- 
ecutive for stewardship for the 
Executive Council of the Episcopal 
Church; the Rev. Robert E. Ratelle, 
rector of St. Michael's and All An- 
gels' Church in Dallas, Texas, and 
former trustee and current regent 
for the University; Katherine 
Folbre, a member of the Board of 
Trustees and a member of the ves- 
try of Christ Church in San Anto- 
nio, Texas, and president of the San 
Antonio Area Foundation; Harry 
Griffith of Winter Park, Florida, 
president of the Anglican Fellow- 
ship of Prayer; John W. Caldwell of 
Lake Wales, Florida, the executive 
director of Kairos, Inc., a nation- 
wide ecumenical ministry to pris- 
oners and a University trustee; Tom 
G. Watson, acting chief administra- 
tor of the School of Theology; Genie 
Hibberts, a rising middler at the 
School of Theology; and Robert Du- 
vall, a rising senior and the presi- 
dent of the student body of the 
School of Theology for the 1985-86 
academic year. 

Emphasizing a Global Perspective 

God the Father of our Lord Jesus 
Christ, our only Savior, the Prince of 
Peace: Give us grace seriously to lay 
to heart the great dangers we are in 
by our unhappy divisions; take away 
all hatred and prejudice, and what- 
ever else may kinder us from godly 
union and concord; that, as there is 
one Baptism, one God and Father of 
us all, so we may be all of one heart 
and of one soul, united in one holy 
bond of truth and peace, of faith and 
charity, and may with one mind and 
one mouth glorify thee; through Je- 
sus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Prayer

Corporate responsibility. 

This is a challenge the Church 
has been calling its membersjo for 
years. And, it is a challenge that is 
being talcen seriously by many, not 
the least of whom is School of The- 
ology student Samuel Hatulale 

Many of those who have had a 
chance to get to know Samuel since 
his coming to Sewanee in August 
realize that this young priest from 
the Diocese of Namibia is genuinely 
concerned not just with the role of 
the Church in Namibia, nor just

in a country so near (geographically 
and politically) to South Africa, but 
rather with the whole state of the 

"I've found people both in my 
country and in the United States 
who don't know of the outside 
world," said Samuel, pointing out 
that he feels there are too many 
people who share little concern for 
their community, much less the 

"People need to be a little broader 
in their perspective of the world," 
he said, "and to think of the Church 
as a wide community in order that 
they may have a sense of what is 
happening outside their 

Since beginning his one-year pro- 
gram at the School of Theojogy, 
Samuel has had the opportunity to 
talk with several Americans, both 
in Sewanee and across the country; 
as a resulfhe said he feels many 
people in this country live sheltered 
lives behind the walls of their own 
world and have difficulty trying to 
understand people and events 
which are outside their realm of 

Samuel said he has found this to 
be especially true when he discusses 
Apartheid's role in his country's de- 
velopment and what it is like to be 
a black priest in a country where 
many rights are denied the black 
majority. "It's difficult for a person 

riere to believe something like 
Apartheid could be in existence, es- 
pecially if one is closed off from the 

According to Samuel, the Church 
is a vehicle which can and should be 
helping to bridge the gap which ex- 
ists between different cultures and 
countries. It is the Church's role, he 
said, to get involved in such things 
as the progression of human rights 
even when those whose rights are 
being violated live as far away as 
Namibia is from the United States. 

"I feel the Church needs to have 
ministers to mobilize the Church to- 
ward other situations, and we as 
priests and ministers must be will- 
ing to embrace all those who suf- 
fer — and suffer with them," he said. 

This is what Samuel hopes to do 
in his ministry during his remain- 
ing few months in the United States 
and throughout his life in Namibia. 

Although he recognizes that Se- 
wanee is not without problems, he 
said the Seminary community here 
has been very supportive of him. "I 
will look back on this year as a good 
experience, as an educational expe- 
rience. The relations between the 
people at the School of Theology are 
very close, and I enjoy the < 
nity life here." 

Samuel said he came to Se 

for a 


here because it is close to the Dio- 
cese of Alabama, which is our com- 
panion diocese, and also because my 
bishop (the Rt. Rev. James H. Kau- 
luma) recommended Sewanee." 

Bishop Kauluma requires all his 
priests to complete a year of theo- 
logical study outside Namibia and 
South Africa following their ordina- 
tion. Samuel is the first priest from 
Namibia to attend Sewanee. 

"Some African students do more 
than a year, but because of my fam- 
ily I will be leaving in early Au- 
gust," Samuel said, adding that his 
wife, Lucia, and seven children 
(ranging in ages from eleven years 
to ten months) are all anxiously 
awaiting his return home. 

While Samuel entered the School 
of Theology under the special stu- 
dent program, he will be leaving 
with a Master of Theological Study 
degree. This was made possible 
through efforts at the Seminary to 
compress a two-year program into 
one year. "They have given me 
credit for work I did at Federal The- 
ological Seminary in South Africa 
and are also allowing me to take 
courses under the Doctor of Divinity 
program as well as all of the junior 
year courses." In addition, he has 
taken several electives including 
liberation theology, forms of viol- 
ence, mission and evangelism, and 

Although Samuel said he is dis- 
tressed that there are no other 
black students at the School of The- 
ology, nor are there any black fac- 
ulty members, he said he feels he 
has had a good experience at 

"The Seminary bothered me be- 
cause it is not integrated at all," he 
said. "But, I have received much as- 
sistance from friends, faculty, and 
students here and have had a 
warm, friendly relationship with 
the people here at Sewanee. I hope 
that this will not end with me but 
will continue with everyone who 
comes here." 

Samuel said he is grateful to the 
Diocese of Alabama for making it 
possible for him to be here, and that 

he hopes to maintain relationships 
with people he has worked with 
from the diocese but especially with 
his friends here at Sewanee. "I hope 
that these relations will continue 
even when I'm away. I want to keep 
in touch." 

"Keeping in touch" is indeed an 
interesting phrase coming from the 
lips of Samuel Kaxuxuena. Those 
who know him realize that keeping 
in touch is exactly what he de- 
sires — not only for himself but for 
the whole Church.

World Mission 

"That All May Have Life" is the 
theme of the Sixth Episcopal World 
Mission Conference June 18-21 at 
the University. 

The conference has been designed 
to help the Church to respond effec- 
tively to the growing number of 
poor, hungry, and dispossessed per- 
sons in the United States and 
throughout the world. 

Speakers for this year's confer- 
ence include the Rt. Rev. David L. 
Leake, presiding bishop of the prov- 
ince of the Southern Cone and 
bishop of Northern Argentina; Dr. 
James Morehead, professor at Tufts 
Medical School; Dr. Jean Morehead, 
public health consultant; and the 
Rev. Samir J. Habiby, executive di- 
rector of the Presiding Bishop's 
Fund for World Relief. 


Alumni Council Meeting 

by the Rev. Dr. W. Robert 
Abstein, T'65, T'78 
The Alumni Council of the School of 
Theology met on April 30 at Hamil- 
ton Hall. Those present, in addition 
to myself, were the Rev. Robert G. 
Certain, the Rev. Charles D. 
Cooper, the Rev. Harrv W. Cran- 
dall, the Rev. P. Michael Davis, the 
Rev. S. Ross Jones, the Rev. John R. 
Throop, the Rev. Martin Robert Til- 
son, vice-president. Also present 
were the Rev. Canon Maurice L. 
Goldsmith, the Rev. Bertie Pittman, 
the Rev. Sister Lucy Shetters, and 
Tom Watson. Due to illness, the 
Very Rev. John E. Bootv. dean of 
the School of Theology, "was unable 
to attend. 

Vice-Chancellor and President 
Robert M. Ayres, Jr. visited with us 
for the first part of our meeting and 
made the happy announcement that 
Dean John E. Booty would be re- 
turning to Sewanee in the academic 
year 1986-87 after a year as visiting 
professor and research fellow at the 
Divinity School at Yale University. 
He also spoke about plans for re- 
structuring the seminary and its 
administration. He hopes to alle- 
viate some of the pressure on the 
new dean by having an administra- 
tor working along side him. He also 
asked our help in identifying poten- 
tial givers of gifts in excess of 

Tom Watson, acting administra- 
tor at the School of Theology, 
brought us up to date in several 
areas on which he is working very 
closely with Dean Booty. We got a 
very good review from the Associa- 
tion of Theological Schools in their 
recent visit following the Seminar- 
y's self-study. We examined the 
areas of strength and weakness in 
order to help the school examine, its 
response to these. We noted that the 
earlier notation against the library 
facilities has now been removed be- 
cause of the fine facilities available 

to the School of Theology at the 
duPont Library. We were pleased to 
hear that since July 1, $180,016.35 
has come to the Seminary through 
the One Percent program. In large 
part this is going to help the area of 
student scholarships. We also 
learned that the chapel is still in 
the planning stage with no date set 
for groundbreaking. 

A portion of our meeting was 
spent with Beeler Brush, director of 
alumni; William U. Whipple, vice- 
president for development; and 
Walter Bryant, director of alumni 
giving, on alumni affairs. Together 
we discussed this year's fall meet- 
ing and have made some changes in 
the format, thus promoting more 
time for returning alumni to enjoy 
each other's company. Mr. Bryant 
shared with us his plans for gener- 
ating more interest in giving to the 
school, and Mr. Whipple informed 
us about the Episcopal seminaries' 
joint booth at General Convention. 

We spent the afternoon with the 
Search Committee for a new dean. 
This is obviously the single most 
important concern of the Alumni 
Council. The Search Committee is 
headed by the Rt. Rev. Duncan M. 
Gray, Jr. We spoke about the job de- 
scription and the expectations of 
both the dean and an administrator. 
It was a very helpful session in 
which many concerns were shared 
as well as hopes and expectations. 
We were glad that the Search Com- 
mittee wassoliciting our responses 
as well as those of the students, fac- 
ulty, and bishops of the owning 
dioceses. We commended them for 
their good work. 

Below is a resolution which was 
unanimously passed regarding the 
Very Rev. John E. Booty. We are 
thankful for his work among us and 
give thanks to him for the leader- 
ship that he has provided for the 
School of Theology. 

A Resolution 

We the members of the School Of Theology Alumni Council offer our 
thanks to Almighty God for providing our Seminary with Dean John E. 
Booty for these past two and half years. During his tenure he enabled 
the School to move to one of the finest Episcopal seminary facilities in 
the country, increased the enrollment of the student body, continued the 
building of a fine theological faculty, and represented the Seminary 
throughout the country with impeccable credentials as a scholar, educa- 
tor, author, and caring Christian man. 

We rejoice that Dean Booty will be returning to the School of Theol- 
ogy after a year as visiting professor of church history and research 
fellow at the Divinity School of Yale University. His scholarship will 
provide many with insights into our Anglican heritage. His friendship 
will continue to nurture us as a fellow member of the Body of Christ. 

With heartfelt thanks for nurturing the relationship of the alumni of 
the School of Theology and for his personal friendship to all who have 
served with him, we offer this resolution of thanksgiving on this 30th 
Day of April, 1985, at Hamilton Hall, Sewanee, Tennessee.

Strengthening Church Ties 

As the University enters the final 
stages of the Century II Campaign, 
the Century II leaders have chal- 
lenged the Episcopal dioceses to es- 
tablish $l-million professorships in 
the College and the School of 

A strong response from the own- 
ing dioceses would lift the campaign 
beyond its $50-million goal and also 
strengthen the emotional ties be- 
tween the University and the 

The plan was unveiled May 3 at 
the meeting of the University's 
Board of Trustees by Harold C. Gos- 
nell, retired bishop of West Texas, 
who has been the University's vol- 
unteer director of church relations 
for the past two years. 

"Four-fifths of the $50 million has 
been raised without any general ap- 
peal to the Church at large," said 
Bishop Gosnell. "We believe now is 
the time for the Church to take its 
rightful place in Sewanee's life and 
future. Our eighty-four diocesan- 

elected trustees have endorsed this 
campaign with their substance and 
talents. As representatives of our 
twenty-eight owning dioceses, they 
are the Church challenging the . 
Church to move forward in 

The hope is that the dioceses will 
undertake to endow academic 
chairs thaj, will carry a diocesan 
identity. Each chair would require a 
minimum $l-million endowment. 
Each diocese would select its chair 
and in turn secure gifts to fund it. 

It was announced at the meeting 
that the Diocese of West Texas, led 
by the Rt. Rev. Scott Field Bailey, 
was the first to make a commitment 
to establish a chair, and four other 
dioceses are developing plans. The 
two dioceses in Louisiana are join- 
ing together to establish a fund to 
be named for the Rt. Rev. Girault 
Jones, former Chancellor and re- 
tired bishop of the Louisiana parent

Fast Finish in Conference 

The twenty-second College Athletic 
Conference Spring Sports Festival 
was held May 9-11 in Sewanee with 
the six conference teams— Centre, 
Earlham, Rhodes (formerly South- 
western of Memphis), Fisk, Rose- 
Hulman, and Sewanee — competing 
in baseball, golf, tennis, and track. 

The Spring Sports Festival week- 
end determined the champions in 
the four conference spring sports 
and finalized the standings for the 
conference's all-sports 

The Tigers fared well in the 
weekend's activities winning two 
championships, placing second in 
track, and tying for third in base- 
ball. The Tigers placed first in both 
golf and tennis and finished second 
behind Rose-Hulman in track and 
third behind Rose-Hulman and 
Rhodes in baseball. 

The CAC All-Sports champion- 
ship was won by Rose-Hulman with 
182.5 points. Sewanee placed second 
in the championship with 170 
points. The all-sports championship 
is determined on a points system 
which combines the standings for 
football, cross country, soccer, bas- 
ketball, golf, tennis, track, and 
baseball. Prior to the Spring Festi- 
val, Sewanee was in fiRh place in 
the all-sports championship race, 
but with the four strong finishes 
during the weekend, the Tigers 
moved into second place, fifteen 
points ahead of third place Rhodes, 


The men's golf team concluded its 
season by winning the CAC golf 
tournament by four strokes over the 
second-place team from Rose-Hul- 
man and by fifteen strokes over de- 
fending champion, Centre. Mark 
Reineke. C'87, was individual med- 
alist in the tournament and team- 
mate, Arthur Brantley, C'85, took 
second-place individual honors. 

In what was called a rebuilding 
year, the linksmen went through 
their dual meet season with an un- 
blemished record of 4-0 and never 
found themselves down to a non- 
scholarship school. 

They also achieved a successful 
record in their tournament competi- 
tion. They finished first in the 
Spring Sports Carnival tournament 
at Florida A & M and placed fresh- 
man Harris Podvey as the tourna- 
ment individual medalist. They 
placed fifth in the Lee and Kenne- 
saw Invitationals and seventh in 
the Shorter Invitational. The team 
also placed seventh in the 38th an- 
nual Tennessee Intercollegiate Golf 
Championships held on the Sewa- 

Senior Arthur Brantley will be 
the only golfer that Coach Horace 
Moore will be losing from this 

year's CAC Championship team. 
Returning to defend that champion- 
ship next year will be Mark Reinke, 
C'87; Harris Podvev, C'88; Tom 
Jones, C'87; Steve Dickerson. C86; 
Ray Powell. C'86; and Mark Rem- 
bert, C'86. 


The tennis season ended on a high 
note with the men capturing the 
CAC tournament and placing six 
members of the team on the all-con- 
ference team. 

Linton Lewis, C'86; Ken Alex- 
ander, C'88; Johathan Woolfson, 
C'86; Mike Salisbury, C'86; Steve 
Johnson, C'88; and Boyd Douglas, 
C'88, were all named to the CAC 

The Tigers finished their regular 
season with a 15-11 record, which 
included big victories over both 
Centre and Rhodes College. Coach 
Norm Kalkhoff termed this season 
a success, especially with the CAC 
tournament win. 


Coach Cliff Afton and his 21-man 
track team, one of Sewanee's larg- 
est teams ever, finished the year 
with a second-place finish in the 
CAC Festival meet behind defend- 
ing champion Rose-Hulman. 

Mark Vandiver, C'86, won the 
shot put with a new school record of 
51 feet, 2% inches. Steve Shankle, 
C'87, won the pole vault; Rob Scott, 
C'87, won the high jump; and Paul 
Pfefferkorn, C'86, won the 10,000 
meter race. 

During the regular season, Rob 
Scott broke the high jump school re- 
cord of 6 feet, 6 inches by consist- 
ently jumping 6 feet, 8 inches in 
both practice and competition. Also 
during the regular season, Brooks 
Corzine, C'87, qualified for the Na- 
tionals in the decathlon. 


The Tiger baseball team ended its 
season with a tie for third place in 
the College Athletic Conference 
round-robin tournament. The Ti- 
gers tied with Centre behind Rose- 
Hulman and Rhodes. 

Nine games into the season, the 
Tigers had a 2-7 record which in- 
cluded a five-game losing streak. 
With stronger hitting, fewer errors, 
and better pitching, the Tigers 
turned their early hard luck around 
to even their record at 10-10 by 
winning eight of eleven games. 
After regaining ground that they 
had lost at the beginning of the sea- 
son, they stayed at about .500 the 
rest of the season, ending with a re- 
cord of 18-17.

Calls Haley 

Sewanee soccer coach Peter Haley 
is leaving the Mountain to accept 
the position as head soccer coach at 
Springfield College in Springfield. 
Massachusetts, his alma mater. 

During his four years at Sewanee, 
Haley's teams compiled a record of 
38-27-5. His 1983 team gave Sewa- 
nee soccer the best record in the 
school's history, 13-5-1. This past 
fall Sewanee's record fell to 8-10. 

Coach Haley will be replacing 
what he himself considers a legend, 
coach Irvin Schmid. Schmid's teams 
compiled a record of 283-160-49 in 
his thirty-six years. 

Haley, a 1977 graduate of Spring- 
field, will be taking over the reins 
in time for the 1985 Springfield 
NCAA Division II soccer season. Se- 
wanee athletic director, Bill Huyck, 
is in hopes of having a new head 
soccer coach by mid-June. 

"Peter is just a dandy coach," said 
Huyck, "We are going to miss him 
very badly. Everything he does is 
done well, and on top of that he's a 
nice guy." 


Strong Finish 
For Soccer 

The women's soccer team won five 
of its last six games to finish the 
"season with a 7-5-1 record. In their 
last six games, they outscored their 
opponents 18-4 on their way to the 
five wins. 

During the season, they won both 
the Sewanee Invitational and the 
Sewanee Spring Invitational soccer 
tournaments by beating such teams 
as the University of Alabama, 
Rhodes College, and Georgia Tech. 

They were led in scoring by Jen- 
nifer Boyd, C'87, with nine goals 
and one assist and Laura Haas, 
C'87, with six goals. Defensively, 
they were led by goalie Nancy 
Brim, C'86, and Tucker Deaton, 
C'87, inthebackfield. 

The women's soccer team will be 
losing four seniors, Jennifer Mur- 
ray, Heidi Barker, Barbara Francis, 
and Beth Rogers, along with coach 
Peter Haley who has accepted the 
head coaching post at his alma ma- 
ter, Springfield College in Spring- 
field, Massachusetts. 


The women's tennis team closed out 
its season with a second-place over- 
all finish in the Women's Intercolle- 
giate Athletic Conference tennis 
tournament held in Sewanee April 

The team's number three doubles 
players, Susy Steele, C'86, and Amy 
Amonette, C'86, won their division 
and were also named to the all- 
WIAC team. 

The team finished the year with 
an overall 4-10 record which in- 
cluded some tough losses to Divi- 
sion I and II schools. 


Jennifer Boyd, C'87, kicks on goal. 


The women's track team finished its 
season with a third-place finish in 
the Women's Intercollegiate Ath- 
letic Conference track meet behind 
teams from Fisk and Berea. 

While the team placed third, run- 
ner Virginia Brown, C'87, improved 
her WIAC records in the 3,000 and 
5,000-meter races, and teammate 
Elizabeth Klots, C'88, set WIAC 
records for the 800 and 1,500-meter 
events. Gretchen Rehberg, C'86, 
also outdistanced her competition in 
the discus to win the event. 


Kim Valek, C'87, a forward for the 
women's basketball team, has been 
named to the Fast Break Little Col- 
lege All-American first team. 

The team often women is pub- 
lished by the American Women's 
Sports Federation and includes 
players from both NCAA Division 
III and NAIA schools. 

Valek has led Sewanee in scoring 
and rebounding in each of her two 
seasons on the Mountain. This past 
season, she averaged 18.5 points a 
game and 10.2 rebounds. She also 
led the team in steals and was a 
double-figure .scorer in all but one 
contest. As a freshman, she aver- 
aged 19 points and 10.2 rebounds a

Not a First 

Contrary to the story published in 
the March issue, the 1984-85 men's 
swim team was not the first men's 
swim team to complete its season 
undefeated at the University of the 

That honor was secured by the 
team of 1958. It was coached by 
Hugh Caldwell, current professor of 
philosophy, and was the second Se- 
wanee swim team in the school's 
history, according to Caldwell. 

That team compiled a perfect 11-0 
record and defeated such power- 
houses as the University of Tennes- 
see, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, Georgia 
Tech, and Clemson. 

We regret the error and salute 
the team of 1958.

Academy / c Qieology 

St. Andrew's-Sewanee 

by Terri Mathes. C'82 
They always come back. Some 
wait years before they do; some 
never leave. But sooner or later, 
every Sewanee alumnus comes back 
at least once, and Bill Johnson, 
A'62, C'66, is no exception. Johnson 
was graduated from Sewanee Mili- 
tary Academy in 1962 and went on 
to spend (bur brilliant seasons with 
the Sewanee Tigers. Before leaving 
the Mountain to play a season for 
the Atlanta Falcons, Johnson set 
Sewanee grid records in rushing, 
scoring, kickoff returns, and punt 

In 1983, twenty years after leav- 
ing SMA, William T. Johnson re- 
turned to become athletic director 
at St. Andrew's-Sewanee School. He 
said he found that many of the old 
landmarks had changed but the 
spirit, which made the Mountain 
his home, still thrives. 

"The quotation on my senior page 
of the yearbook reads, 'Life is a 
song, and here I learn to sing.' And 
I still believe that today!" he said. 

Like many adolescents, Johnson 
had suffered his share of growing 
pains during his early teens. "I 
really wanted to use coming to Se- 
wanee Military Academy as a way 
to start over," he said. 

He found that chance in athletics 
where, for the first time, he re- 
ceived recognition for his excellent 
performance. "Having that positive 
feedback from coaches, teachers, 
and the newspapers helped me to 
establish myself as a human being 
who was worth something." In time 
he found himself supporting many 
of the school's philosophical tenets. 

"Like the honor code," he ex- 
plains. "I never had that before. 
Everyone had a copy in a little 
black frame that hung on the wall." 

Thus, it is not surprising that Bill 
Johnson found himself almost un- 
wittingly drawn into life at St. An- 
drew's-Sewanee School, where Bill 
Wade, a fellow Sewanee alumnus, 
had become the headmaster. "At 
first I told Bill, 'My wife won't live 
in Sewanee! I don't even know if/ 
want to live in Sewanee again.' But 
when I got here and saw the enthu- 
siasm of the parents, board mem- 
bers, and kids-— especially the 
kids — for what was going on, I lost 
a lot of my skepticism." 

What Johnson saw is a school 
where students still learn self-re- 
spect and integrity, where the 
honor code is still alive, and where 
growth is occurring on a daily basis. 

As a member of the school's Ad- 
ministrative Team (affectionately 
dubbed "the A-Team"), Johnson has 
watched SAS achieve in four short 
years what many had thought was 
impossible. Since his arrival in 
1983, Johnson has seen the school's 

enrollment increase and admissions 
inquiries double. He takes great 
pride in his involvement in the 
school's growth. "I saw an opportu- 
nity to be on a building team. It's 
very exciting to be part of creating 
something that's so important to 

From Coach Johnson's viewpoint, 
this growth means that more and 
better athletes are coming to St. 
Andrew's-Sewanee. But it also 
means the school can attract stu- 
dents from a wide variety of back- 
grounds and interests, and this 
diversity has become the hallmark 
of St. Andrew's-Sewanee. As direc- 
tor of athletics, Johnson partici- 
pates in establishing a curriculum 
as diverse as the students it serves. 
The afternoon activities program 
which he oversees includes twelve 
interscholastic sports, plus such ac- 
tivities as drama, computer science, 
music, rock climbing, dance, canoe- 
ing, horseback riding, and art. 

Because he so vigorously supports 
the idea of a diverse student body, 
Johnson is a strong advocate of the 
school's liberal financial aid policy, 
which allows many students to at- 
tend St. Andrew's-Sewanee who are 
unable to pay full tuition. "It comes 
out of the St. Andrew's tradition," 
said Johnson. "You can see it in our 
reaction to the TSSAA ruling." 

The ruling, passed by the Tennes- 
see Secondary Schools Athletic As- 
sociation, requires independent 
schools to register all athletes who 
receive financial aid. Any team 
having more than a specified num- 
ber of players on scholarship is 
barred from post-season play-offs 
and championship competition. 
With nearly 50 percent of its stu- 
dents on some type of financial aid, 
St. Andrew's-Sewanee found most of 
its teams exceeded the Association's 

"Rather than tell a student, 'You 
can't play,' and rather than change 
our student body, we eliminated 
ourselves," said Johnson. "We're the 
only school in Tennessee to do 

Listening to Bill Johnson talk, 
one recalls the old saying, "It's not 
whether you win or lose, it's how 
you play the game," for it expresses 
his vision of the school as a whole. 
"I want us to be a community that 
moves out of a tradition of Chris- 
tian morals in the way it deals with 
youngsters — and their parents — 
and in the way it grows. I feel called 
here. God wants me here. Some- 
times I don't know why, but it's ab- 
solutely wonderful."

by W. Cothran Campbell, C'50 

I am flattered to have been asked to 
reflect on a subject 1 know about 
best — me — and how I make a liv- 
ing — with racehorses. 

I grew up all over this country. 
Never graduated from grammar 
school, high school, or college— but 
went to them all. I made a living in 
a number of ways — from driving an 
ambulance to being the master of 
ceremonies of the Cypress Gardens 
Water Ski Show to being a sports 
writer for some insignificant daily 
newspapers. I landed in Atlanta in 
1950 and later co-established the 
advertising agency. Burton- 

Now to the horse business. I grew 
up around horses. My father had 
horses, and he went into the race- 
horse business full time in 
1940. ..about a year before war was 
declared and two years before the 
President shut down most race- 
tracks. My father, therefore, was 
not exactly in a growth-oriented 
business. And he went fiat broke. 
At that point I was hooked on race- 
horses and never got over it. 

In the late '60s, when Burton- 
Campbell bad started to do some 
good, I bought a horse with a couple 
of friends, and then I stumbled on 
an idea that caught fire in the 
world of racehorses. I conceived the 
dea of forming a syndicate or Uni- 
ted partnership and selling shares 
•acehorse. The person who gets 
nto these deals 1) could possibly 
mako some money. 2) could have 
some attractive tax benefits, and 31 
would be involved in a glamorous, 
exciting, colorful venture. I came up 
with a heck of a racehorse. Her 
name was Mrs. Cornwallis, and she 
greatly stimulated interest as she 
was one of the best racemares of her 

By 1971, 1 looked around, and I 
had eighteen horses and forty-five 
investors, and I decided I either had 
to be in the horse business or the 
advertising business, but not both. 
So I sold my interest in the adver- 
tising agency, and I went into the 
horse business. Ninety-nine percent 
of the people in the world thought I 
was an absolute lunatic. 

Today, Dogwood Farm, Inc., is 
quite successful. The stable is one of 
the strongest in the world, ranking 
in the top one-half of one percent 
(with over 20,000 stables racing) in 
the nation in money won. In 1983, 

our horses earned $1,003,000 to put 
us in a very select group. We have 
sixty horses on the farm in Green- 
ville, Georgia, and we have a staff 
of thirty-five. We have offices in At- 
lanta and fifty horses stabled at the 
racetracks — either Hialeah, Bel- 
mont Park. Monmouth Park in New 
Jersey, Santa Anita in California, 
or in Newmarket, England. 

In all we manage $18,000,000 
worth of horses and have 150 actual 
investors from Honolulu to Scot- 
land. And it's a big business. Like a 
lot of big businesses there are at- 
tendant dealings with bankers, law- 
yers, tax specialists, and 
accountants — a side of the business 
I find unappealing. 

One similarity I have with writ- 
ers is that I deal with and depend 
on character traits. Oversimplified, 
I depend for my living — and so do 
the other thirty-five people with 
Dogwood Farm — on the ability of a 
large, four-legged animal to get 
from point A to point B faster than 
other large, four-legged animals. 

But what I am really about is a 
quest for class la hard word to de- 
fine): Quality. Guts, Poise, Charac- 
ter—Class! And it is interesting 
that America's number one specta- 
tor sport and one of the largest in-, 
dustries in this country is 
dependent on the relativity of cour- 
age, determination, ability, and 
class of these very beautiful and no- 
ble animals. That's the charm of it. 

Horses have traits just as humans 
do. Some are reliable, but have lit- 
tle talent. Some are brilliant, but 
unreliable. Some have what we call 
"cheap speed" — a great expres- 
sion. ..Some horses can come out of 
the gate, open up about five 
lengths, have great ability, and just 
roll on in a relentless manner until 
challenged and looked in the eye by 
another horse. Then he quits, 
throws in the towel, says, "I've had 
enough." That horse has "cheap 
speed". How many people do you 
know with "cheap speed"? 

And occasionally you find a horse 
with ability, soundness, disposition, 
and class.. .and when that happens 
you have caught lightning in ajar! I 
caught it in 1971 when I found Mrs. 
Cornwallis and she changed my 
life— put me in the horse business. 
I've caught it a number of times. 
But on August 8, 1978, a horse and 
a horse race gave me the greatest 
single moment of my life. 

Dogwood Stable at that time had 
made good progress, but our syndi- 
cation approach had not been fully 
accepted by some of the old guard 
traditionalists in the sport. We were 
flirting with being a factor in big- 
time racing, but we weren't there 

At Saratoga Springs that day 




r / 


there was assembled one of the 
year's greatest fields of middle-dis- 
tance racehorses. Dogwood ran an 
entry — two horses. One was Cin- 
tello — brilliant, but enormously pe- 
culiar. When the gate opened that 
day, he didn't want to run and liter- 
ally walked out of the gate. Very 

But the other horse in the entry 
was Dominion — who invented the 
word class. He laid about sixth in 
the early running Of this large field 
of horses. Around the far turn he 
made his move, and when the 
horses turned into the stretch and 
straightened out for the drive to the 
wire there were five horses abreast, 
in perfect alignment. In the middle 
was that little bay horse named Do- 
minion. What followed was one of 
the most heart-stopping stretch 
runs imaginable. Down the stretch 
they came— Dominion, in the mid- 
dle, his ears flattened and his belly 
on the ground. Inch by torturous 
inch, he fought his way to the lead 
and he won that race by three-quar- 
ters of a length. Yod could have 
heard me in Chicago! I'll rerun that 
race in my mind a couple of times a 
day for the rest of my life. It was 
important. It established Dogwood 
as a quality factor once and for all 
in the business and sport in which I 
make my living!! ' 

But— like a writer— I'm in a 
game that requires enormous resili- 
ence and constant optimism. For 
the thrilling peaks of victory there 
are many more dark valleys. I'm 
willing to walk through those val- 
leys, but thank God there are occa- 
sional peaks. My life in horse racing 
has strengthened my abhorrence of 
the philosophy that winning is the 
only thing. That may have been 
fine for Vince Lombardi and Bear 
Bryant, but they didn't race horses. 
Winning is not the only thing; 
trying to win is the only thing.

Hall Leaves Coaching 

The captain of Sewanee's 1951 basketball team, Joe B. Hall, C'51, has 
retired from the most prestigious head coaching job in the country, cen- 
ter stage and hot seat at the University of Kentucky. 

Coach Hall ended a nineteen-year college coaching career which in- 
cluded a national championship in 1978, three appearances in the 
NCAA final four, one National Invitational Tournament title, and eight 
SEC championships. His overall coaching record is 373-153, and his re- 
cord at Kentucky is 297-100. 

Recruited to play basketball at Kentucky. Hall stayed two years with 
one of Adolph Rupp's better teams before transferring to Sewanee to 
play for Lon Varnell. While at Sewanee. he played guard and broke a 
single-game scoring record with twenty-nine points. 

He started his coaching career at Shepherdsville (Kentucky) High 
School, later taking head coaching jobs at Regis College in Denver and 
Central Missouri State before succeeding Rupp at Kentucky following 
the 1971-72 season. 

Hall has been a rare success at following legendary coaches (in his 
case Adolph Rupp). It was reported that even Kentucky's president Otis 
Singletary tried to persuade Hall to remain in his job. Coach Hall said 
he never intended to coach longer than this. 

The Very Rev. Allen L. Bartlett, Jr., C,

Were you recently called to meet as-

You might have made your de-

Passport & Visa Service, founded by 
Shannon Jones, C'82. Her Atlanta- 
based company provides an unusual 
service in expediting passports, vi- 
sas, and necessary support docu- 
ments for travelors facing imminent 
departures. And success has been 
largely dependent upon her contacts 
and peers from Sewanee. 

Shannon began the company 
within a year of her graduation 
while working part-time for a travel 
agency. Her first opportunity was a 
seemingly impossible situation: 
thirteen missionaries from North 
Georgia en route to India asked if 
their Mastercard would be all right 
instead of their Visa, not realizing 
that an embassy-issued visa is nec- 
essary to enter India for any pur- 
pose. After a heroic effort, including 
many calls to Washington for as- 
sistance, she was successful in pro- 
curing all forms, photos, and 
financial statements required. 
Such transactions became a full- 

time commitment for Shannon, and 
traveling between Atlanta and 
Washington was routine. She called 
on friends and classmates in Wash- 
ington to help in making appeals to 
embassies and agencies. Thus the 
company was born. 

Charlotte Puckette, C'83, the first 
paying client, later became both 
agent and account executive in At- 
lanta. Beth Mann, C'83, was an as- 
sociate with Shannon during the 
first six months of business. To- 
gether they suffered the growing 
pains of the business before Beth re- 
located in Miami as Mrs. Stephen 
Potter, C'80. During that time, 
David Freibert, C'82, was a part- 
time courier/agent, developing the 
Washington network. 

By April, 1984, the business be-, 
gan to show signs of viability. Shan- 
non contacted several other 
Sewanee graduates to assist in op- 
erations: in New Orleans, David 
Sherar, C'82; in Washington, John 
Hutchinson, C'84, and Scott Jamie- 
son, C'83; and in New York, Miami, 
and Houston, several mutual 
friends among Sewanee classmates. 

Shannon reports that the com- 
pany continues to grow at a re- 
markable pace.

An Incessant Memory 

Since the death of Charles Harrison on January 25. there have been 
numerous reminders in conversations, informal addresses, publications, 
and resolutions of what Professor Harrison has meant to the University 
of the South. It is not simply that he was loved and revered by so many 
alumni but that, in the words of a member of the faculty, "he epitomized 
what has made our University great and significant in spite of our prov- 
incial location and the small scope of our operation." 

In the columns that follow are published four tributes to Professor 
Harrison by one of his former students and three colleagues, two of 
them Sewanee graduates The first tribute is reprinted from a column 
by Robert Wyatt. C'73, which was published in the Nashville Tennes- 
sean shortly before Dean Harrison's death. 

by Robert Wyatt, C'73 

The University of the South will publish a collection of essays by 
Charles T. Harrison, Jesse Spaulding Professor of English emeritus and 
longtime department chairman, under the title Shakespeare's Insistent 

Included in the collection are a number of remarkable essays, many 
from the Sewanee Review, including "The Everest of Poems," a moving 
essay on King Lear. 

Those of us who had the rare privilege to sit at Harrison's feet (I jest 
not; we called him Zeusi know him as the best of teachers, the greatest 
of humanists, the finest of intellects, and the warmest of human beings. 

(Sometime during my sophomore year at Sewanee. I remember team- 
ing up with a fellow student over a pitcher or three of beer at Clara's to 
trounce a heretic who possessed the tenacity to argue that Charles Har- 
rison was not perfect; we were serious.) 

I recall the tear in the corner of Harrison's eye when Dante and Virgil 
parted in The Divine Comedy, remember his grief after the death of his 
cat Jack Kennedy Harrison, cherish his charge to me when I departed 
for graduate school. 

I've studied at several illustrious universities since and never met his 

Memorial Resolution 

by Henry F. Arnold, C'57 

The third quarter of the twentieth century was a great time for Sewa- 
nee. and for many of us it was a period utterly dominated by Charles 
Trawick Harrison. 

As dean of the College in the fifties, Charles and his close friend Gas- 
ton Bruton. the dean of administration, both taught almost full time 
and yet, with a meager staff and with equipment not much more sophis- 
ticated than the pencil sharpener, they ran the college with an old-fash- 
ioned efficiency measurable only in terms of the dozens of 
administrators and scores of electronic gadgets that have since proved 

During the sixties. Charles was the masterful chairman of an English 
department that always taught what Charles wanted taught, hired 
whom Charles wanted hired, and passed on the comprehensive exami- 
nation those seniors Charles deemed passable — and that was never de- 
tectably undemocratic in its proceedings. Charles's immense generosity 
towards his departmental colleagues, especially his fierce protection of 
those on the brink of superannuation and those with the fewest years 
and the skimpiest credentials, could not be forgotten when it came time 
to count the votes — or, on those rare occasions when Charles might con- 
ceivably have been on the losing side, when everyone refrained from 
calling the question. Privately, no matter how wild the scheme, painful 
the problem, or outrageous the manifesto a department member brought 
with him to Charles in his hour of need, the chairman's prudential coun- 
sel and eloquent reassurance always proved equal to the occasion. 

As great as it was, Charles's generosity towards his colleagues barely 
stood out amidst the love he lavished on azaleas and chamber music, on 
clerks, waitresses, and neighborhood children, on Lucretius and Jere- 
miah, on elegant cats and mongrel dogs and lost political causes. Not so, 
however, what he gave his students. That was truly special, perhaps 
even magical. How many times have we seen a freshman with a low 
predicted average and no observable aims in life beyond comfort and 
safety leave here four years later with a Harrisonian appreciation of 
truth, beauty, and goodness that Charles professed to have discovered 
already present in the young man on the first day in class, but that, as 

far as the rest of us could tell, had been created ex mhilo by Charles's i 
magnetism during one of those intense moments he was forgetting to 
flick the ashes from his cigarette. 

Charles's death gives us occasion to reflect on the kind of earthly im- i 
mortality achievable by a good and gifted member of our profession. His 
"dear and kind paternal image" will long be cherished and his teachings 
followed by his former students. All over the United States and well into 
the twenty-first century there will be Sewanee alumni who know an 
ethical dative when they see one or know the reason there is an 'V in 
"dentist" and an "o" in orthodontist" because Charles Harrison once 
showed them how much pleasure could be derived from a new attentive- 
ness to language. There will be Sewanee alumni shrewdly rejecting the 
blandishments of the most artful propaganda because Charles Harrison 
once brought home to them the value of critical thinking as they exam- 
ined Iago's speciousness. There will be Sewanee alumni dealing gra- 
ciously with clumsy subordinates because Charles Harrison once made 
them see how Bottom the Weaver merits respect. 

And who could begin to calculate how much of Charles's wisdom is 
still being-transmitted almost intact by those of his students who have 
made teaching their profession? The age of a bountiful supply of aca- 
demic jobs happily coincided with the height of Charles's Sewanee ca- . 
reer. During that time, it was the mark of an inferior graduate program 
not to have in residence at least one student who was convinced he had 
learned more in one semester under Charles Harrison than in sixteen 
graduate courses. Since Charles has been the dominant intellectual and 
moral influence on just about every one of his dozens of students now 
teaching and on hundreds who have chosen other professions, of Charl- 
es's impact on the academy and on humanity, there is literally no fore- 
seeable end. We do well to honor his memory. 

Not His Like Again 

by William T. Cocke HI, C'51 

Charles Harrison was blessed with a plethora of aunts. His mother's five 
sisters were an apparently never-ending source of anecdotes. One which 
I remember with particular delight is about Charles when he was pack- 
ing up to go from Alabama to Harvard in Cambridge, Massachusetts. 
One of his aunts, I think it was Nannie, took him aside and said, 
"Charles, don't you go up there now and get any ideas." But he did, and 
generations of students and friends and colleagues have profitted from 

I first met Charles in 1947 soon after he and Eleanor came to Sewa- 
nee from William and Mary. As I had been a freshman in the College 
the year before, the fact that I had been in Sewanee longer than he 
became a standard retort of mine whenever I found myself intimidated 
by his vast knowledge. In trying to regain lost control I would call him a 
parvenu. But then he would always remind me that one should never 
use a foreign word when there was a perfectly good one in English to 
express one's meaning. "Not parvenu, Billy," he would say. "It's new- 
comer." As always, he had the last word. 

Since then not a day of my life has passed that he has not appeared to 
me in my mind's eye to admonish or correct my words and deeds; and for 
more than twenty-five years, I was privileged to live and work in the 
light of his brilliant intellect and the warmth of his Christian

Gentle Atmosphere 

by John V. Reishman 

Charles Trawick Harrison, professor of English, died on January 25th in 
his home on Running Knob Hollow Lake (next door to where Allen Tate 
lived when he was in Sewanee). Charles Harrison, a son of southern 
Alabama, hated winter weather, and in his old age he had come to fear 
it. It was typical of his fierce will, which helped to maintain the highest 
academic standards when he was teaching, that he should have decided 
to leave this life before the worst weather of the winter came. He was 
buried on a snowy day. 

It was Charles Harrison who made me want to come to Sewanee in 
the fall of 1968 when he invited me for an interview. What he said and 
what he embodied on that fall weekend seemed to summarize my own 
professional aspirations, and I agreed immediately when he asked me to 
teach and live on the Domain, which I had never seen forty-eight hours 

I had been discouraged at the disruption of the academic world by the 
tensions of the Viet Nam era which had finally been felt at the Univer- 
sity of Virginia, where I had done my graduate work and was currently 
teaching in the English department. I was distressed by the disaffection 
of students and teachers from traditional academic disciplines and pro- 
cedures and by the effort in many colleges and universities to deal with 
a national crisis by turning to untried and superficial remedies. 

The day I was first to teach Hamlet, a big day in the life of a young 
teacher, I found the humanities building at the University of Virginia 
surrounded by a chain of so-called student activists, who were attempt- 
ing to shut down the university to protest the war in Viet Nam. The 
lack of logic and liberality in their gesture appalled me, and I thought 
then that I would either go back to West Virginia and work in my fath- 
er's hardware store, or I would find a place to teach real subjects to real 
students who wanted to learn them. 

I knew even before I met Charles in the Chattanooga airport that he 
stood for "the real thing." Among those of -us who do not use a type- 
writer there is a brotherhood: Charles wrote to me in his own hand and 
I responded in kind, so a bond had already been forged when we shook 
hands and began a hair-raising automobile ride to Sewanee (Charles not 
only didn't type; he drove as an aristocrat of another age might have 
ridden horseback with little regard for anything that might obstruct his 
design and with only the vaguest notion of the physical and legal re- 
strictions imposed on others). We got out of his car in Sewanee and 
strolled around the central campus, arriving finally at his office on the 
second floor of Walsh-Ellet. We sat down in semi-darkness (Charles was 
also not fond of electric lights), and he asked the only question directed 
to me on that afternoon: "Do you want to teach students literature?" 
"Yes. sir," I replied. That seemed the only critical element of our ex- 

change, and the rest of the weekend was spent meeting other faculty 
members and teachers and enjoying the good life in Sewanee. Red Lan- 
caster was dean and also emphasized to me the crucial importance of 
directing my professional energies toward the men and women in my 

During cocktails at the Harrison's, I found myself seated between An- 
drew Lytle and Allen Tate, drinking Jack Daniels Black Label out of 
Eleanor Harrison's silver julep cups, while Charles talked to us about 
King Lear. It was among the beadiest moments of my life. I couldn't 
wait to come to work for Charles Harrison and the University of the 

Charles represented what I think is crucial about Sewanee and its 
claims to distinction in higher education. His knowledge of the English 
language was deeply rooted in the tradition of classical study which had 
always flourished in the American South. He had distinguished himself 
as an undergraduate classics major at the University of Alabama, but 
went on to Harvard Graduate School to demonstrate his capacity to 
flourish in then, the most rarified academic setting on our shores. At 
Harvard. Charles studied under the great George Lyman Kitteridge and 
absorbed the new humanism of Paul Elmer Moore and Irving Babbit. 
His learning was profound and his professional preparation of the high- 
est caliber. 

Apart from his impressive academic achievement and his established 
merit as a literary scholar, Charles was also deeply committed to the 
communication of insight through teaching. He despised the narrowness 
and self-absorption of the current academic establishment and insisted 
that he would feel more at home at a Lions Club convention than he 
would at a meeting of the Modern Language Association. He came to 
Sewanee because he saw it as a place where the best that had been 
known, or thought, could be communicated on a personal level in a 
gentle atmosphere to men, and later to women, who knew instinctively 
that before they had been put to work by the great world that they first 
wanted to learn to gaze at that world through the liberating lenses of 
humanistic learning. Charles Harrison knew that his primary task was 
to be the medium by which that learning could be transmitted to his 
students: his personality, his character, his wonderful Johnsonian- 
speech.-his house, his garden, and the music he loved as much as litera- 
ture were to be the vehicles through which the great plays of Shake- 
speare were to come alive in Sewanee in his time. 

But Charles was also a teacher of teachers, and I am deeply grateful 
to have served mv apprenticeship under his gentle but firm hand. When 
I first began to teach in Sewanee, Charles was always available to tell 
me what I needed to know. My regular routine was to ride my bicycle to 
the Harrisons at five p.m. on the way home from the office, have a 
drink, and discuss mv classroom endeavors with Charles, and then any 
gossip I had gleaned with Eleanor, his wife, while Charles pretended not 
to listen. Thev grudgingly tolerated my being a Republican because I 
liked dogs, but didn't hunt. (Red Lancaster, on the other hand liked my 
being a Republican, but thought I was silly to have a golden retriever 
unless I was a hunter.) Charles made sure that I knew my students and 
was pleased that I liked fraternity parties— though he appeared to be 
shocked that I knew the words to rock music. 

The only disagreement that we had was not serious, and Charles-, .is 
ususal, was right. I had ordered a book of contemporary short stories 
entitled Identity, which I intended to use in tandem with Ihe five plays 
of Shakespeare which constituted the curriculum for English 101. 
Charles discovered my order and trendy title at the book store and im- 
mediately canceled the order. (He was never one to feign democratic 
principles or practices in the essentially hierarchical system <>( the aca- 
demic world.) Then he came to call, ostensibly to have a dunk, bul ulti- 
mately to explain why I was wrong to have ordered the supplementary 
text and why he was right to cancel it. His reason was thai students 
have only four years, in most cases, to learn the many crucial lessons 
which literature can teach. In his huskv Alabama accent, unaltered by 
years in New England and Middle Tennessee he explained. "The faculty 
can only presentpur students with what is great and lime tested The 
tenor of our students lives' depends in part upon their teachers' unyield- 
ing rejection of the second-rate. Those stones may not prove good 
enough for them. We know the Shakespeare plays are fine. So teach 
them Shakespeare." Thank God for Charles Harrison and may (hose of 
us who live after him keep alive in Sewanee the philosophy of literature 
and education by which he lived his t,ife.

Century II Is Major Victory For Sewanee 

Editor's Note: In August and Sep- 
tember, the Century II Campign 
moved quickly beyond the $50 mil- 
lion goal. By press time the fund ex- 
ceeded $512 million. In the 
following article, William U. Whip- 
ple, vice-president for development, 
reviews the efforts leading to victory. 

In December 1975, 1 submitted my 
first report as Vice-President for 
Development, outlining the Univer- 
sity's vitally important financial 
needs and the program for meeting 
them. That report was submitted at 
a time when Sewanee was facing 
some rather severe financial prob- 
lems that demanded a solution if 
she were to continue to be a center 
of excellence. That report was writ- 
ten with an attitude of cautious op- 
timism; it was also written with a 
deep sense of urgency and concern. 
At that time, I pledged every ounce 
of my energy and ability for a suc- 
cessful development program. 

From its creation over a hundred 
years ago by southern dioceses of 
the Episcopal Church, Sewanee has 
maintained both a unique atmos- 
phere and high standards. I am con- 
vinced that people today are 
recognizing more and more the 
value of "liberal arts" and are show- 
ing their appreciation by giving, 
and giving generously, of their 
treasure, time, and talents. 

It is a personal privilege to report 
that we have completed our eighth 
consecutive year with an operating 
budget surplus. Our financial secu- 
rity depends upon our ability and 
willingness to live within our in- 
come; this I believe we continue to 
do. Let us now render an accounting 
of our success in securing these un- 
restricted and restricted monies 
over this past fiscal year (July 1, 
1984 through June 30, 1985): 

Gifts: $2,134,944.76 

Bequests: 1,444,549.50 


Gifts: $1,606,711.81 

Bequests: 1,220,014.54 


Grand Total 


has indeed blessed us this year. By 
definition and performance, bene- 
factors are "those whose good works 
and gifts make for the well-being of 
others." There is historic evidence 
of the positive response to our pray- 
ers on behalf of this University; 
there are lists and records of bene- 
factors whose gifts have strength- 
ened the goals of this institution. 
Listed in the following pages are 
this year's benefactors, those who 
have believed in and are dedicated 
to affirming the spirit for the well- 
being of humanity, providing the 
best possible opportunity for the 
wholesome fruition of every individ- 
ual this University serves. Only in 
such dedication can we fulfill the 
ultimate mission of this Christian 

There are indeed a number of 
things for which we can all be 
deeply grateful: 

(1) 60 members of the Chancel- 
lor's Society — those who contributed 
$10,000 or more toward the capital 
funds campaign — whose dollars to- 
taled $4,340,960; 

(2) 2,733 alumni contributing 
$1,724,047— representing 28 per- 
cent participation for the College 
and 16 percent for the Seminary; 

(3) 332 members of the Vice- 
Chancellor's and Trustees' Soci- 
ety — those giving a minimum of 
$1,000— contributing $605,315; 

(4) 197 members of the Quintard 
Society — those contributing a mini- 
mum of $500— whose gifts totalled 

(5) 1,497 members of the Century 
Club, contributors of a minimum of 
$100— whose dollars totalled 
$231,611; and 

(6) Church support totalling 
$515,887, of which $210,514 was 
given to the School of Theology in 
support of the "one percent" resolu- 
tion passed by the General Conven- 
tion of 1982.

Prayer which lingers in everyone's 
mind is, "Bless all who have con- 
tributed to this institution; and 
raise up, we pray, a never-failing 
of benefactors...." God 

are to reach our ultimate goal. 

Sewanee's faculty, students, and 
staff are continuing to demand 
much of one another in an atmos- 
phere of common effort toward a 
common goal. There is r 
of young people who want and c 
profit from the unique Sewanee ex- 
perience. Our efforts toward sus- 
taining the quality of that 
experience must be continuous and 
vigorous at a time when costs are 
increasing faster than income. 

In October of 1982, we launched a 
bold program — one that we were 
not afraid of, one that we had confi- 
dence in and believed in — a capital 
funds campaign called the Century 
II Fund with a challenging goal of 
$50 million. Cash and commitments 
to this program currently stand at 
approximately $49 million and were 
made by generous and concerned 
alumni, parents, friends, corpora 
tions, foundatit 

Several factors this past fiscal 
year have brought us our success to 
date. Last year, I reported our plan 
to ask Sewanee's governing dioceses 
to help identify individuals who will 
give toward endowing a diocesan 
chair at the $l-million level. Such 
commitments from the Dioceses of 
Alabama, Dallas, Texas, West 
Texas, Atlanta, and South Carolina 
and Upper South Carolina jointly, 
in a time when the relationship be- 
tween the Church and the Univer- 
sity is often questioned, are proof 
indeed of the need for an institution 
committed to the practices of Chris- 
tian education. Several more like 
commitments are pending which we 
hope to have on record by the end of 
the campaign. 

It is the Vice-Chancellor's hope, 
and that of the Boards of Regents 
and Trustees, that we conclude this 
campaign when we celebrate Foun- 
ders' Day on October 6, 1985, ex- 
actly three years since its formal 
launching. We face a significant 
challenge between now and Octo- 
ber, that of raising the final $1 mil- 
lion which will successfully 
conclude the largest and perhaps 
the most significant endeavor ever 
undertaken in the history of this 
small Episcopal-governed Univer- 
sity with only 1,100 students and 
an alumni body of 12,000. This is 
truly an opportunity, an opportu- 
nity for all of us who believe in 
higher education, and it is going to 
take commitment from each and 
every one of us.

Century II Victory 

In this regard, we are in the proc- 
ess of asking our alumni to join in 
support of our efforts and give this 
campaign the kind of momentum 
which only they can supply to drive 
us over the top. As stated by a most 
devoted and committed alumnus 
and. at that time, President of the 
Associated Alumni, Ben Hum- 
phreys McGee, A'42, C'49, at an 
Alumni Council meeting prior to 
his death in August of 1975: "We 
Sewanee men and women are our 
University's most important asset. 
We have all got together with other 
Sewanee alumni to reminisce, 'how 
great it was.' We : re all going to 
have to do more than pay lip serv- 
ice. I call on all of us to give our 
best in time and resources." We are 
asking those alumni who have not 
made a five-year commitment to the 
Century II Fund campaign to con- 
sider joining with their peers in de- 
termining the success of this effort. 
It will be in the margin of victory 
that Sewanee will show its metal. 

Similarly, this fall, we shall ask 
those who launched this tremen- 
dous effort to help conclude it. A 
new generation of students — the 
real beneficiaries — will make their 
special commitment to their 

We have additional reason to give 
thanks — for those who have given 

so generously of their time, talent, 
and treasure — our campaign volun- 
teer leaders. To Allan C. King, 
C'51, genera! chairman; the Rt. 
Rev. John M. Allin, C'43, T'45. gen- 
eral co-chairman; Gerald L. De- 
Blois, C'53, national vice-chairman; 
John W. Woods, C'54. and James W. 
Perkins, C'53, chairmen of the Na- 
tional Pattern Gifts Committee; and 
Louis W. Rice, Jr., C'50, chairman 
of the National Leadership Gifts 
Committee, we give heartfelt appre- 
ciation. Certainly, the love these 
leaders have bestowed upon this 
University in their service and ded- 
ication places them permanently in 
that "never-failing succession." 
The financial strength of this 
University is in our hands. I pray 
that each of you will join with me to 
the fullest extent possible in our 
work for this great institution, for I 
wholeheartedly believe that all of 
us have been chosen to do His work 
in this special place. Let us trans- 
late our prayers into disciplined 
service in order to claim, share, and 
enjoy our godly heritage.

Jesse L. "Sam" Cart-oil, Jr., C'69, president of the Associated 
Alumni, and WilliamU. Whipple, University vice-president for de- 
velopment, have announced that C. Beeler Brush, C'68, has accepted 
the position of director of alumni giving which has been vacated by 
the retirement of Walter D. Bryant, Jr., C'49. As a result, a vacancy 
exists in the alumni office. Candidates are being sought for execu- 
tive director of the Associated Alumni, the position held by Beeler 
Brush since 1979. Letters describing the position and asking for ap- 
plications will be mailed soon to all alumni. 

'86 Directory 

Work is under way on the 1986 Se- 
wanee Alumni Directory. 

Near the end of this year, all 
alumni should be receiving ques- 
tionnaires by mail, and a prompt re 
turn would be much appreciated so 
that the directory will be current 
and complete. 

The questionnaires will be fol- 
lowed by calls from representatives 
of Harris Publishing Company of 
White Plains, New York, who will

the directory and take orders for 

Dear Classmates (and others): 

The twentieth anniversary of our 
graduation was duly celebrated in 
Sewanee last October, and as I had 
the pleasure of attending it, I am 
writing my own reflections in the 
form of this newsletter. Our class 
has gone without an agent since M. 
L. Agnew could no longer serve 
and Allen Wallace had done more 
than his share on our behalf. 
D wight Ogier has written to you to 
explain that, with my prompting 
after we met on the Mountain at 
our reunion, he will be our agent to 
generate support and foster enthu- 
siasm for benefaction and to raise 
interest in getting all to attend our 

We 1964s have been out of touch 
with each other during this period 
of transition; therefore, we all hope 
to re-establish communication 
through periodic mailings:from now 
on with Dwight's help. Please write 
to him in Mobile with any pertinent 
news, and remember that financial 
support of our old college is neces- 
sary for its well-being, the gesture 
of some contribution from every- 
body in the class being of greater 
significance than the individual 
amounts. I would hope the class of 
. 1964 might be the first to get 100 
percent of its members to contrib- 
ute, unique as it is in many other 
ways. Be reminded that gifts for 
this year must be in by the 30th of 
June, and let's all think ahead for 
greater participation for 1986. 

My own enthusiasm for continued 
support for Sewanee stems as much 
from loyalty to my alma mater for 
the educational opportunities it af- 
forded me as from confidence in the 
new direction the University has 
taken in the 1980s. Having revis- 
ited the Mountain again after an 
absence abroad of nearly twenty 
years, I was delighted to see much 
of the best features still the same 
while being very impressed by the 
new developments. I feel thankful 
for the years I spent on the Moun- 
tain, and whether or not my own 
daughters attend the University 
eventually, I propose to support the 
institution so that it continues to of- 
fer its education to other young 

The reunion last October was not 
the center focus for our class quite 
the way it was for the 1934s and 
1959s. But for the forty or so people 
who attended, it was very enjoya- 
ble. There were a few surprises and 
lots of laughter, and I think we all 
came away feeling it was great fun 
but too brief a party weekend. As 
usual, I didn't have a date because 

my wife refused to come with me. I 
hesitated at the notion of taking a 
several-thousand-mile road trip for 
a weekend, but my friend Karl 
VanDevender, C69, on the tele- 
phone from Nashville soon per- 
suaded me to attend. 

Here in Oxford I'd got to know 
most of the Sewanee men who'd 
come over as students in the late 
'60s and early '70s and who now 
live in Nashville. Bob Black, too, 
studied here and has been a con- 
stant friend over the years, as has 
Dan Murray, whom Ihave known 
wellsince our time at the Wharton 
School in Philadelphia. And Bill 
Stirling remains one of my devoted 
friends from East African voluntary 
service with whom I've kept in 
touch over the years. All of these 
people were planning to be on the 
Mountain for the reunion and it 
was not to be missed. 

I traveled from London to New 
York to see some of my dealers en 
route to Nashville. David 
Speights, who works in Manhat- 
tan, met me, so we had the opportu- 
nity to talk at length before the 
reunion. Hayes Noel, there also, 
told me he was going south when 
we spoke on the telephone, and I 
was delighted to learn how many 
other classmates he had talked into 
attending as well as David. Earlier 
I had talked to D. B. Murray from 
lovely California who had arranged 
for Philip Plyer to be at the 

When I got to Nashville the night 
before Homecoming, the Van- 
Devenders, my hosts, entertained 
some of tin. Sewanee friends there, 
amongst whom was Jim Price, as 
well as friends mentioned from 
other years. I took the offer of a lift 
to Sewanee the next day with Jim, 
good humored and prosperous as 
ever, and his wife, who is Charles 
Donnelly's sister. They were stay- 
ing with Bill Weaver in Monteagle 
Assembly, and it was at the Weav- 
er's house that many of our class 

That Friday afternoon was a 
balmy autumn day, so we toured 
the campus and ended up at She- 
nanigans where Joe Owens had 
just ordered a pitcher of beer as we 
arrived. I recognized him immedi- 
ately, as he seemed to have changed 
very little and his wit was as sharp 
as ever. Not immediately he recog- 
nized me, and he suggested I looked 
"seedy." But I took no notice of the 
remark as it was the sort of thing 
Wellingtons always had to endure 
in the presence of Los Peones. I 

Continued on page 4 



really enjoyed talking to Joe who, 
like my brother back in Missouri, is 
farming and trying to keep the 
Johnson grass at bay. 

David Dye said hello during reg- 
istration, and Ed Taylor, whom I 
had seen in Indianapolis a few sum- 
mers before, was in line at the same 
time. Dwight Ogier came in be- 
hind us. and I got into conversation 
with a number of different people 
from classes behind us, freshmen 
during our senior year. 

It was frustrating to have so little 
time to converse at length with any- 
one in particular, yet pleasant to 
see so many familiar faces and to 
learn what in life had transpired for 
each of the old friends. That eve- 
ning I was kindly invited to the 
Weavers' open house in the Assem- 
bly ground and enjoyed the com- 
pany of (the inimitable) Philip 
Plyer, Dan Murray, Stuart Mc- 
Daniel, Hayes Noel, Bill Weaver, 
Jim Price, and their wives. The 
true spirit of a Sewanee party week- 
end prevailed: so many people were 
coming and going it was a constant 
delight 1 regret that I did not get 
over to the campus to the official 
function to see many of the other 
people from our year, yet we met 
the next day. 

Saturday was packed with events, 
the first important one being the 
Alumni meeting. I sat with my old 
friends. Kirk Dormeyer, a mild 
and mellow man, and Gerald De- 
Blois, C'63. who pleased us by com- 
ing for the weekend. We were 
brought up to date on University 
planning by the Vice-Chancellor, 
and prospects for the future were 
spelled out. I came away feeling the 
College of Arts and Sciences is 
stronger than ever, and I was im- 
pressed favorably by the amount of 
alumni support at hand. The old li- 
brary is very suitably used now as a 
convocation hall. 

Bob Black took me shopping at 
the Supe Store to make sure I took 
back some appropriate token to his 
goddaughter, my ten-year- old at 
home. We then headed for the Bish- 
op's Common for lunch and happily 
were side-tracked to the Phi House 
by my mentor and occasional visitor 
here. Willy Cocke. It was the usual 
open house there, leading up to pa- 
rade time and the Homecoming 
game. As our class assembled, 
Tommy Mason, John Duncan, 
Tommy Flovd, Warren Culpep- 
per, Steve Walker, and Bill Rue 
took up the lead as we all ex- 
changed greetings. Dwight Ogier 
carried our class numerals and Bill 
Stirling diverted all by relating one 
or two personal experiences for our 
amusement. I saw Jim Wimer 
briefly, and at the football game I 
sat with Kingsley Hooker, who 

was in very good form, too. 

During half-time and after the 
game, John Bondurant, and 
Jerry Kizer and I went over to 
Tom Carlson's house to a gathering 
of Kappa Sigs, our fraternity that 
has ceased to exist on the Moun- 
tain. The football game turned out 
to be an exciting duel to the end 
with the home team only losing out 
in the last minutes. The standard of 
play seemed to be the same excel- 
lent sort which was maintained in 
our day by Messrs. Agnew, Davis, 
Dormeyer, Majors, Cofer, Noel, 
and Rice, and on that occasion it 
seemed unfortunate to see our ap- 
parently superior home side go 
down in the closing minutes, as I'm 
sure these former players who were 
present (except for M.L.) would 

The Alumni Office arranged a 
cocktail party for our class at the 
Sewanee Inn after the game, where 
we were photographed as a group. 
Bud Foeder, Bernie Wolff, Mike 
Martin, John Todd, Charlie 
Minch, Al Schmutzer, and Dick 
Stephenson I enjoyed seeing again 
on that sunny afternoon, and Bob 
Rice introduced me to his wife and 
daughter who were with him. The 
gathering was very informal and I 
felt that, perhaps on our twenty- 
fifth, we ought to have a little more 
organization and possibly our own 
dinner and a discussion. 

Bill Stirling and Bob Black 
agreed with me that it would be 
worthwhile to have some sort of or- 
ganized exchange of views in addi- 
tion to our socializing at a reunion, 
so I shall be looking ahead toward 
our next one with this in mind. At 
supper in the home of Ted and 
Debbie Stirling that final evening 
of the weekend, we inevitably de- 
bated the pros and cons of our Se- 
wanee educational system and very 
interesting contrasts emerged from 
the points of view of Bill and Ted 
Stirling, Bob Black, Kirk Dor- 
meyer, and Gerry DeBlois. 

On the Sunday, as the weekend 
drew to a close and the friends went 
their ways, I reflected happily upon 
the pleasure of getting reacquainted 
with those class members who at- 
tended the reunion, and many of 
their ladies, and then I thought 
about some of those who could not 
attend. It was said that both Allen 
and M.L. were indisposed, and that 
there were other cancellations such 
as Hill and Susan Ferguson. I had 
recently been in touch with Skip 
Hansberger in Paris, who, after a 
visit to the Mountain a few sum- 
mers ago during a vacation in At- 
lanta, found it impossible to make 
the journey this time. 

I came away feeling very glad I'd 
been able to attend a reunion, and I 
hope to encourage even a better re- 
sponse by this letter for our next 
major gathering. With Dwight 

Ogier's help, I should like to put to- 
gether some sort of updated year- 
book to have ready for our twenty- 
fifth so that the details of each class 
member's life — the positive side cer- 
tainly — can be seen in a chronology. 
I would find this interesting, and it 
would serve as some preparation for 
the changes and developments to 
expect as we become reacquainted. 
And so, as your errant class presi- 
dent, I shall be further in touch, 
looking forward to 1989.

In part because of the generosity ofSewanee's alumni and friends, 
this issue of the Sewanee News has burst out of its columns. Mechan- 
ical limitations allow us to publish no more than thirty-two pages, 
and as you can see, on half of those pages we are saluting everyone 
who has made a gift to the University. 

As a result we are holding back a lot of material, including liter- 
alh hundreds of class notes. We will be publishing those class notes 
in the December issue. Some may be getting old, but they certainly 
will not be stale.

Maria Kirby-Smith, C71, of Edge- 
field, South Carolina, was commis- 
sioned by the citizens of 
Greensboro, North Carolina, to cre- 
ate a life-sized statue of O. Henry 
(William Sidney Porter) to be un- 
veiled at a festival honoring the 
town's famous native son in April of 
this year. 
The Greensboro statuary includes 

a bronze figure of O. Henry, stand- 
ing six feet tall and jotting down 
notes for a story. Behind him is an 
open "book of cast aluminum, seven 
and one-half feet high and twelve 
feet wide. A boy from "The Ransom 
of Red Chief peeps out from the 
pages on the left side of the book, 
and on the right is a scene depicting 
0. Henry's "The Gift of the Magi." 
Across from O. Henry is a dog, 
scaled to the O. Henry statue. 

Chosen from fifty-four entries in 
a nationwide competition staged by

Ms. Kirby-Smith's 0. Henry statu- 
ary is not the first outstanding

I can't let the tributes to Charles 
Harrison in your last issue fade 
from memory without adding a few 
comments on the catalytic role 
Charles played in Sewanee's liberal 
traditions. He was my dean when I 
first taught at the University 
thirty-one years ago, and I was 
happy to discover that not only was 
he a good administrator— fair, hu-. 
mane, scholarly, and exacting — but 
that he shared many of my ideas re- 
garding politics, academic freedom, - 
and civil rights. He had been a fol- 
lower of the socialist Norman 
Thomas, he told me proudly; he had 
attended sessions at the Highlander 
Folk School at Monteagle and knew 
and admired Myles Horton; and he 
was a strong advocate of integration 
(a fighting word in those days), the 
union movement, women's rights, 
the conservation movement (which 
was to become the ecology move- 
ment), and disarmament. Later he 
was a witty and dedicated partisan 
in a number of campaigns to save 
Highlander from red-baiters, to op- 
pose the John Birch Society, to de- 
segregate the University, to 
demilitarize the Sewanee Military 
Academy, and to stop the Vietnam 
War. Concerning the latter cam- 
paign, he helped start a small SDS 
(Students for a Democratic Society) 
chapter here, and was an enthusias- 
tic participant in several morato- 
riums — those days we replaced 
regular classes at the University by 
lectures and discussions on Viet- 
nam. I remember vividly Charles's 
eloquent discourses in the Garth on 
Shakespeare's attitudes toward 

In short, we have lost not only a 
scholar and a gentleman, but a com- 
mitted worker for human rights. I 
know that I am not alone in finding 
much evidence to demonstrate that 
it has been to a considerable extent 
Charles's influence that has ena- 
bled the University of the South to 
procure and retain its predomi- 
nantly progressive faculty over the 
last thirty years.

Namibia who preceded Samuel at 
the University of the South. The 
Rev. Gabriel Nekongo studied in 
the College of Arts and Sciences in 
1974 and 1975 before transferring 
to St. Francis's in New York. I un-

New Coach, New Style 

Todd White, with a total of eighteen 
years of playing experience and six 
years of coaching experience, has 
taken over the reigns of Sewanee's 
soccer program. White filled the va- 
cancy left by Peter Haley, who re- 
turned to coach at his alma mater, 
Springfield College. 

White, during his four-year var- 
sity career at Columbia University, 
helped lead Columbia to four Ivy 
championships and four NCAA Di- 
vision I Tournaments. He also had a 
successful career as a semi-profes- 
sional soccer player with club teams 
throughout New York. A part of his 
coaching experience includes serv- 
ing as an instructor at numerous 
soccer camps and clinics across the 
United States. He came to Sewanee 
from Horace Mann School where he 
taught history and English and 
coached the boys' varsity soccer and 
lacrosse teams since 1982. 

The Tigers opened their 1985 
campaign on September 7, Accord- 
ing to White, "A strong recruiting 
year by coach Haley brought to Se- 
wanee some freshman players who 
will be able to contribute signifi- 
cantly." White is anticipating a 
"successful program and season 
that fans will enjoy watching." 


With an improved defense and a 
solid offensive line, and after "one 
of the best fall practices in five 
years," according to Coach Horace 
Moore, the Tigers are a team to be 
reckoned with during this gridiron 

Coach Todd White weaves around 
Allston Moore, C'87, during a Tiger 
early fall practice. (Photo: Lyn 

The Tigers' roster of fifty-four 
candidates includes twenty-two 
freshmen and, according to Moore, 
"no stars." In fact, the Tigers will be 
returning only one of last year's all- 
conference players, defensive line- 
man Clark Jackson, C'86. The Ti- 
gers will also include one of the 
nation's best Division III punters, 
Brian Mainwaring, C'86. Mainwar- 
ing will be handling the Tigers' 
field goal and extra point duties 
this season, too. 

A boost to the program has been 
the addition of lights to the practice 
field. The lights have helped alle- 
viate one of the Tigers' practice 
problems of conflicting afternoon 
drills and afternoon classes. 

The Tigers kicked off their season 
with their two toughest opponents 
of the year, Samford and Millsaps. 
Their overall season does not prom- 
ise to get much easier either, espe- 
cially with games at Rhodes, 
Centre, and Hampden-Sydney. 

With a tough defense, a steady of- 
fensive line, and an expected strong 
kicking game, the Tigers are back 
to contend in the College Athletic 

Women's Cross Country 

"This will probably be the best 
women's cross country team that I 
have had since I came here in 
1980," was Cliff Afton's reaction 
when asked how the women's team 
would compete this fall. 

Coach Afton can justify the state- 
ment by just referring to the Tiger 
roster, which includes one cross 
country all-conference selection 
from last year's squad, Virginia 
Brown, C'87, and two all-conference 
runners from last year's track team, 
Elizabeth Klots, C'88, and Kai 
McCrossen, C'86, plus several tal- 
ented freshmen. 

The women will open their har- 
rier season September 7 at home 
during the Sewanee Invitational. 
They will then try to improve on 
last year's second-place finish in the 
Women's Intercollegiate Athletic 
Conference championships on Octo- 
ber 26. With hopes running high, 
the women are looking forward to a 
trip to the NCAA Division III re- 
gional on November 10, and after 
qualifying there on to the 

Men's Cross Country 

Coach John McPherson is looking 
at this year's cross country season 
with optimism thanks to a fine 
group of returning seniors and a 
large crop of freshmen.

year, Paul Pfefferkorn, C'86, will 
help lead the Tigers this fall along 
with Eric Johnson, C'86, and Andy

country season on home turf with

ber 7. On November 2, the Tigers

teams vying for the College Athletic

Field Hockey 

With nine returning players from 
last year's Women's Intercollegiate 
Athletic Conference championship 
field hockey team, Coach Jeannie 
Fissinger is optimistic about keep- 
ing the WIAC crown on the Moun- 
tain for another year. 

All-conference and regional Ail- 
American captain, Jenny Cook, 
C'86, will lead the club along with 
help from her all-conference team- 
mate, Danielle Gothie, C'88. Along 
with the nine returning players, 
Fissinger's roster will include four 
freshmen who are all expected to 
contribute to a successful confer- 
ence title defense. 

The Tigers will open their season 
at Southern Illinois University on 
September 7 and will conclude their 
year with the WIAC championships 
October 25 and 26 at Sewanee with 
three teams trying to take the 
crown away from the Tigers. 


Although the women's volleyball 
team will be without veteran Liz 
Epps, C'85. Coach Nancy Ladd is 
expecting the experience and matu- 
rity of sophomores Amy Amonette, 
Marian MacPherson, and Janice 
Walker to lead this year's team to a 
conference title. 

Along with the experienced group 
of returning sophomores, the Tigers 
will also have veteran setter Chris- 
tina McKnight, C'87, and back row 
specialist Laura Haas, C'87, 

They will open their season with 
the Tennessee Temple Invitational. 
They will also be participating in 
tournaments at Emory and Henry 
College and Maryville College and 
will host their own mini-tourna- 
ment in mid-October. They will con- 
clude their season with the 
conference championships Novem- 
ber 1 and 2 at Asbury College. 


Coach Bryant's Farewell 

After thirty-two vears of University 
service, Walter Bryant, C'49. has 
retired, and as you read this, he is 
probably teeing off on one of those 
east-coast Florida golf courses. To- 
morrow we will get a palm-tree post 
card that says: "Wish you were 
here," and he will mean it. 

Coach Bryant returned to Sewa- 
nee back in 1953, only about four 
years after his graduation. He was 
probably the first of the class of 
1949 to return — that class that has 
become very much the class of serv- 
ice. From this group have emerged 
eight faculty members (three cur- 
rent professors), more than a half 
dozen trustees, three regents, nu- 
merous alumni officers, the current 
Vice-Chancellor, and now (in Wal- 
ter Bryant) a former director of ath- 
letics, director of alumni giving, 
and Associated Alumni secretary. 

His first autumn back in Sewa- 
nee, Bryant was a coach and assist- 
ant director of athletics but very 
soon became director of athletics, 
the position he held for almost 
thirty years. 

He presided over unprecedented 
growth in Sewanee athletics. He su- 
pervised an increase from six to sev- 
enteen varsity sports for men and 
women. He managed an increase in 
the coaching staff from four to thir- 
teen. And he helped plan the con- 
struction of an array of athletic 
facilities, including Juhan 

In 1983 he resigned as director of 
athletics to devote his full attention 
to helping Sewanee reach a Century 
II campaign goal of $50 million and 
became director of alumni giving. 

A person of Coach Bryant's con- 
viviality cannot pass thirty-two 
years in Sewanee without gathering 
an abundance of friends and memo- 
ries. As he prepared to leave his of- 
fice in Thompson Hall near the end 
of August, packing old photographs, 
plaques, and mementos, he spoke of 
a few efforts and events that 
marked his (and Sewanee's) life. 

"I do not believe enough attention 
has been given to the effort that 
was made to improve women's ath- 
letics," he said. "When women stu- 
dents came in 1969, we did not have 
any facilities for women. Many ad- 
justments had to be made; some 
programs did not flourish or sur- 
vive. It took time to get women 
coaches and a women's athletic di- 
rector. But a real effort was made to 
answer every interest that was ex- 
pressed," he said. 

For a time (pre-Shirley Majors 
years) Coach Bryant was an assist- 
ant football coach, but his continu- 
ing joy was coaching golf. In 
twenty-one years of College Ath- 
letic Conference competition, his 

teams won eleven conference titles 
and a trip to the national champion- 
ships. Yet Coach Bryant is one of 
the first to point out that one does 
not coach golf as he would coach 
football or basketball. 

"I did talk about conduct," he 
said. "What I tried to emphasize to 
my boys was that when they were 
out on the course, they were not Joe 
Smith or whoever; they were that 
boy from Sewanee." 

He said the greatest compliment 
a coach can get is for someone to 
say, "Your boys are fun to play 

"We have had some fine young 
men," he said. 

With continuing pleasure, Coach 
Bryant recalls 1961 when the golf 
course, was built with grass greens 
and tees, improved fairways, a golf 
shop, and water system, all for only 

"I think it was a miracle," he 
said. "Why now one green can cost 

The new golf course meant more 
than better recreation on the Moun- 
tain. For instance, every year but 
one since 1961, the University has 
played host to the Tennessee Inter- 
collegiate Golf Tournament, which 
each spring brings as many as six- 
teen teams to Sewanee. Players now 
on the professional tour have played 
in the tournament. 

The construction of Montgomery 
Baseball Field by Coach Majors for 
only $10,000 one summer was also 
cited by Coach Bryant as an exam- 
ple of the successes that have 
marked Sewanee athletics off the 
playing field. 

"We were fortunate in the people 
we had — Bitondo, Majors, Moore, 
Varnell — people who got things 
done without committees," he said. 

"But maybe the greatest thrill of 
working in athletics has been work- 
ing with the kids who have the cali- 
ber our students have had. Now 
people from other schools talk about 
their kids, too, but we have the fig- 
ures to back us up, like the number 
of scholar athletes we have." 

Sewanee ranks with the most 
prestigious universities in the na- 
tion and first in Division III in the 
number of NCAA scholars it has 

"One year the captain of the foot- 
ball team (DougWPaschall, C'66) 
and the captain of the basketball 
team (Tom Ward, C'67) were both 
Rhodes Scholars. I don't know that 
any school has been able to claim 
that. That doesn't say anything 
about the coaches. That just shows 
the kind of kids we have." 

In one respect Coach Bryant will 
remain officially close to Sewanee 
athletics. He has been and remains 

the only commissioner the College 
Athletic Conference has had since 
its formation in 1962. It is similar 
to his positions on several other 
boards and committees of the Na- 
tional Collegiate Athletic Associa-

Record Year in Admissions 

This past year has been one of the 
most successful ever for admissions 
efforts in the College of Arts and 
Sciences. The College received the 
largest number of freshman appli- 
cations in its history— 1,058— which 
is an 18 percent increase over 1984. 
The previous high was 914 in 1974. 
The applicant pool was also one of 
the best in terms of academic 

An unexpected turn of events was 
the large number of students who 
accepted Sewanee's offer of admis- 
sion this year. With the continuing 
decline in the number of graduating 
high school seniors across the coun- 
try, and the fact that several of Se- 
wanee's competitors were also 
experiencing an increase in applica- 
tions, the admissions staff and com- 
mittee on admissions did not expect 
such an increase in numbers. The 
freshman enrollment goal was 295 
students; however, the College reg- 
istered 340 freshmen, the largest 
class in the history of the College. 

This also will be one of the 
brightest classes to enroll in the 
past twenty-two years. The average 
high school grade point average of 
this class is 3.19, the average SAT 
score is 1150. and the average ACT 
score is 26. The 1150 SAT average 
represents a 42 point increase over 
the previous year. 

Geographically, the Class of '89 
hails from thirty states, the District 
of Columbia, and Norway. Tennes- 
see is represented by the largest 
number of students in the class 
(fifty-eight students), but is fol- 
lowed closely by Georgia (fifty- 
seven), Texas (forty-four), Florida 
(thirty-six), and Alabama (thirty- 

When asked the reasons contrib- 
uting to such a successful admis- 
sions year, Ed Wilkes, director of 
admissions, responded: "It was the 
hard work and long hours put in by 
an extremely dedicated and compe- 
tent group of admissions profession- 

als. I don't think 1 have ever seen 
such a hard-working group of indi- 
viduals." We have accomplished in 
the past two years what I though 
would have taken four or five years. 
I think we can point to several 
things which contributed to this 

"First, the complete revamping of 
our admissions publications proba- 
bly had the single greatest impact. 
We have increased dramatically the 
number of students to whom we 
mail information through the Stu- 
dent Search program and the re- 
sponse to that has increased more 
than five-fold in two years. Also, 
our two campus visitation pro- 
grams^ — one in the fall and one in 
the spring— along with the changes 
in the Wilkins Scholars program, 
have contributed enormously to our 
success. In addition, the personal 
attention and many hand-written 
notes for which the Sewanee admis- 
sions staff has always been known, 
and the assistance of many volun- 
teers including current students, 
parents, alumni, and clergy havt 
been very important and 

It will be interesting to follow th 
progress of the Class of '89 — which 
one might call the "best and the 
brightest" — and which is certainly 
the largest!

Robert Degen Retires 

Robert A. Degen, whose money and 
banking course attracted hundreds 
of Sewanee graduates, has retired. 

Professor Degen has been a mem- 
ber of the economics faculty since 
1951. He was head of the depart- 
ment for ten years, and, as one col- 
league said, "He was a steady hand 
throughout, keeping us all sane." 

On occasion his articles were pub- 
lished in professional journals, and 
as recently as last year, he taught 
in the University of London Pro- 
gram in which Sewanee partici- 
pates. But primarily he quietly 
devoted himself to his teaching at 

Economics majors recall his 
classes in international economics 
and the history of economic 
thought. However, Professor De- 
gen's money and banking course 
was particularly popular, and at 
times one class would have to be di- 
vided into three.

The Wilkins 

Through a generous bequest from 
Georgia M. Wilkins of Columbus, 
Georgia, the College of Arts and 
Sciences has, since 1962, named 
several distinguished entering stu- 
dents as Wilkins Scholars. These 
students are selected on the basis of 
academic achievement and intellec- 
tual promise, demonstrated leader- 
ship ability, and notable qualities of 

Several changes were made in the 
Wilkins" Scholarship program dur- 
ing the 1984-85 academic year. The 
minimum scholarship award was 
increased $5000 per year, students 
interested in the scholarships were 
required to complete a separate 
scholarship application and write 
an additional essay, the scholarship 
application deadline was one month 
earlier than the deadline for regu- 
lar admissions applications, and a 
select group of students chosen as 
scholarship finalists was invited to 
Sewanee to be interviewed for the 

The response to the program this 
year was overwhelming and sur- 
passed the expectations of the ad- 
missions committee and the 
admissions staff. In all, 239 stu- 
dents from twenty-four states and 
the District of Columbia applied for 
the scholarships and presented im- 
pressive credentials. The high 
school grade point average for the 
entire pool of scholarship applicants 
was 3.54; the average SAT total 
was 1237, and the average ACT 
composite was 28. 

From this group of students, 
eighty-two were selected as finalists 
and invited to Sewanee for inter- 
views. An impressive statistic 
worth noting is that of the 157 non- 
finalists (those not invited for inter- 
views), eighty-one or 52 percent de- 
cided to matriculate at Sewanee. 
The profile of this group is very 
good: average high school GPA, 
3.36; average SAT total, 1199; and 
average ACT composite, 28. On the 
evidence of yield and quality of 
these non-finalists, the Wilkins pro- 
gram seems to have had a very posi- 
tive effect on applicants for 
admission, even beyond those who 
were finalists or winners. 

Of the eighty-two finalists invited 
to Sewanee for interviews, seventy- 
four accepted the invitation. The 
committee on admissions and schol- 
arships (the interview and selection 
committee), was interested in hav- 
ing approximately twenty-five stu- 
dents enroll as Wilkins Scholars 
this fall. The committee offered Wil- 
kins Scholarships to forty-two of the 
seventy-four finalists, and twenty- 
seven of the forty-two (64 percent) 
accepted the scholarship and matri- 
culated at Sewanee as members of 
the class of 1989. The statistics for 
these twenty-seven Wilkins Schol- 

! f*iH

tion in front ofBreslin Tower. (Photo: Lyn Hutchinson) 

ars are very impressive: average 
high school GPA, 3.77; average SAT 
total, 1310; and average ACT com- 
posite, 29. The SAT average of the 
Wilkins Scholars has increased by 
70 points over last year and by 100 
points in the past two years. 

Based upon the high yield of non- 
finalists to matriculants (52 per- 
cent) and scholarship winners to 
matriculants (64 percent), as well 
as their outstanding academic 
achievements, the changes in the 
Wilkins Scholars program seem 
warranted and well worth the addi- 
tional effort and expense. In addi- 
tion, eleven of the thirty-two 
finalists who were not offered schol- 
arships also decided to matriculate 
at Sewanee. In all, 119 entering 

freshmen, or 35 percent of the class 
of 1989, were involved with the Wil- 
kins Scholarship program. 

The application deadline for the 
Wilkins Scholarship program for 
1985-86 is January 15, 1986. To re- 
quest admissions and scholarship 
application materials, interested 
students should write Office of Ad- 
missions, The University of the 
South, Sewanee, TN 37375, or 
phone (615) 598-5931, Extension 
238. The help of alumni and friends 
in recruiting outstanding students 
with leadership abilities and nota- 
ble qualities of character could 
make the Wilkins Scholarship pro- 
gram even more successful in 1985-

New Faculty 

The University has selected the 
first Frank W. Wilson Professor of 
Political Economy. He is Ansel M. 
Sharp, who is moving to Sewanee 
from Oklahoma State University 
where he has taught economics 
since 1957. 

The professorship in political 
economy was established earlier 
this year with an $800,000 grant 
from the Tonya Memorial 

Professor Sharp is one of twelve 
new faculty members teaching this 

Peter Bayley, Berry Professor and 
department chairman of English at 
St. Andrew's University, Scotland, 
has been leaching under the Oxford 
Studies Program as a Brown Foun- 
dation fellow and visiting professor 
of English. Professor Bayley taught 
at Sewanee in 1977 and taught pre- 
viously at the University of Dur- 
ham and Oxford University. 

Among other appointees is Lon- 
gina A. Jakubowska, a native of Po- 
land who recently received a Ph.D. 
in anthropology from State Univer- 
sity of New York at Stony Brook. 

Returning to Sewanee from pre- 
vious appointments will be Parker 
E. Lichtenstein, visiting professor of 
psychology, and Regis Miannay, 
visiting professor of French.

The Dean's Column: 

A Time of Change 

by the Very Rev. John E. Booty 

This past year has been an im- 
mensely eventful year for the 
School of Theology. The dean re- 
signed; Edna Evans retired; David 
and Patricia Killen have departed; 
new faculty have been hired (al- 
though two are not altogether new 
to the school ) in the fields of pas- 
toral theology, Christian ethics, and 

liletics; the i 

• from the 

5 far 

"one percent" contributii 
more than doubled; we moved into 
new facilities, and EFM is now 
moving to join us; the student body 
has continued to grow; and we have 
been reaccredited bv the Associa- 
tion of Theological Schools. 

At the same time the School of 
Theology is being challenged along 
with the University of the South of 
which it is an integral part. We 
were reaccredited by the ATS but 
received strong recommendations 
for the improvement of the school 
and one notation reads: "The fi- 
nances and other assets are not suf- 
ficiently independent of the college 
or university with which the school 
is connected." This is something for 
the administration and the Board of 
Regents to consider and, 1 pray, do 
something about. 1 am not the first 
dean to find this to be a stumbling 
block. As the ATS visiting commit- 
tee reported, the financial health of 
the School of Theology is sound, but 
there is too much mystery, and 
there are too many confusions about 

The faculty of the degree program 
of the school is changing. The ar- 
rival of new teachers, such as Philip 
Culbertson in pastoral theology, 
Bill Hethcock in homiletics, Joe 
Monti in Christian ethics, and for 
this coming year Mary Anne Sha- 
han as director of field education 
and pastoral concerns, means that 
about one third of the faculty has 
been replaced. It is now time for 
there to be a serious effort made to 
revise the curriculum, to reshape it 
in relation to current realities and 
chiefly in terms of a changing stu- 
dent body and a changing church. 

Our extension program. Educa- 
tion for Ministry, is at a major point 
of transition. The revision of the 
curricular materials is well along 
the way; the staff is moving into the 
old (renovated) Academy library, 
and with the departure of David 
Killen there will be a restructuring 
of the administration of the pro- 
gram in relation to the School of 
Theology as a whole. The manner in 
which all of this takes place is of 
critical importance. EFM is the lay, 
theological education, extension 
program of the Episcopal Church. It 
is being used by more and more 
non-Episcopal churches and is ex- 
panding in Australia. New Zealand. 
the Bahamas, and soon in an 

sion in Central Amer- 
ld shortly in Great Britain. It 
deserves serious care as the transi- 
tion proceeds. 

I leave the deanship with confi- 
dence in the future of this institu- 
tion, provided that the challenges 
are met head-on and dealt with cre- 
atively and constructively. Person- 
ally, I do not believe that 
theological education as it is done 
in our present accredited seminar- 
ies should or will continue very 
much longer. According to one set of 
ATS statistics, approximately one 
half of all Episcopalians enrolled in 
theological degree programs (in- 
cluding M.Div.. D. Min., etc.) are to 
be found in institutions other than 
Episcopal seminaries. It may be 
that Berkeley-Yale is providing a 
viable model for the future. It is 
likely that more and more dioceses, 
largely for financial reasons, will be 
sending their students to nearby 
non-Episcopal schools for theologi- 
cal education. It is important that 
church leaders pay attention to the 
realities of what is actually happen- 
ing. If the School of Theology is 
committed to the best theological 
education and flexible concerning 
the means by which such education 
is to be realized, it can make an im- 
portant contribution to the changes 
occurring and glorify God for gener- 
ations to come. 

EFM Changes 

David P. Killen, who for seven 
years has been executive director of 
Bairnwick Center, has resigned to 
take a position as director of minis- 
try formation and resource theolo- 
gian at Blessed Sacrament Catholic 
Church in Midland, Michigan. 
As an interim measure, Tom 

Watson, the acting administrator of 
the School of Theology, will direct 
the Bairnwick operations. 

Another major change occurred 
during the summer when the Edu- 
cation for Ministry offices were 
moved into newly renovated quar- 
ters at Hamilton Hall. 

to Faculty 

Faculty changes in the School of 
Theology for the next academit year 
include the appointment of the Rev. 
William H. Hethcock, director of 
field education, to associate profes- 
sor of homiletics and Christian 

Joseph E. Monti, who has been on 
one-year contracts for two years, 
has been appointed assistant profes- 
sor of Christian ethics. He is also be 
teaching courses vacated by the res- 
ignation during the summer of Pa- 
tricia O. Killen, who has taken a 
position on the faculty of Loyola 
University of Chicago. 

In addition two new members of 
the faculty have moved to Sewanee. 
The Rev. Philip L. Culbertson, rec- 
tor of Christ Church in Oberlin, 
Ohio, has been named assistant pro- 
fessor of pastoral theology. The Rev. 
Mary Anne Shahan, director of pas- 
toral care at South Highlands Hos- 
pital in Birmingham, Alabama, has 
been appointed director of field 

While the Rev,. Donald Armen-' 
trout is serving as interim dean of 
the School of Theology, church his- 
tory will be taught by Stephen W. 
Angell, a student in the doctoral 
program at Vanderbilt University. 
He holds a bachelor's degree from 
Earlham College. 

The Rev. Mr. Culbertson has been 
rector of Christ Church since 1976. 
He has served and helped lead nu- 
merous organizations in Oberlin, 
including Oberlin Hot Meals Pro- 
gram and the Oberlin Ministerial 
Association. He was a hospital 
chaplain and a guest lecturer at 
Oberlin College. Since 1977 he has 
served on the diocesan Ecumenical 

committees at the diocesan and na- 
tional levels. 

In 1977 he received his Ph.D. 
from New York University (depart- 
ment of religious education) after 
two years of study at Hebrew Uni- 
versity in Jerusalem as a Fulbright 
Scholar. • a-- 

Previously he was associate rec- 
tor of the Church of the Holy Trin- 
ity in New York City. He received 
his M.Div. degree in 1970 from 
General Theological Seminary, and 
in 1966 was awarded a B. Mus. 
from Washington University in St. 

The Rev. Ms. Shahan has been a 
priest associate for three years at 
St. Andrew's Church in Birming- 
ham in addition to her work at the 
hospital. Previously she was a 
priest associate at St. Alban's 
Church in Birmingham. She has 
also served churches in Trussville, 
Alabama, and Atlanta. 

In 1975 she received her M.Div. 
{magna cum laude) from Candler 
School of Theology of Emory Uni- 
versity in Atlanta, and she studied 
at Graduate Theological Union, 
Berkeley, California. She received 
her bachelor's degree in 1972 from 
Webster College. 

St. Luke's 

The annual St. Luke's Day Convo- 
cation will be held in Sewanee at 11 
a.m. October 16 at the center of this 
year's expanded DuBose Theologi- 
cal Symposium. 

Alumni may begin registering for 
the various events of October 15-16 
at 10:30 a.m. October 15 in the 
Foyer of Hamilton Hall. The first 
lecture of the symposium will begin 
at 1:30 p.m. that afternoon in Con- 
vocation Hall, and the presentation 
of several papers will follow. 

The alumni banquet will be held 
at 6:15 that night in Cravens Hall 
after an Evening Prayer service in 
Hamilton Hall and a reception in 
Cravens Hall. 

Two principal lectures on October 
16 will be held before and after the 
St. Luke's Day service in the Ham- 
ilton Foyer. In addition to a lunch- 
eon for alumni, spouses, and senior 
students that day at the Sewanee 
Inn, alumni will also be welcomed 
to a barbecue, with blue grass band, 
that evening at Cravens Hall. 

First DuBose 

The first DuBose Theological Sym- 
posium, October 15 and 16, will be 
the highlight of this year's celebra- 
tion in Sewanee of the centennial of 
the birth of Karl Barth. 

The symposium is ecumenical in 
orientation, with three major lec- 
tures and a series of shorter topical 
papers being given on various as- 
pects of Barth's ecc lesial and theo- 
logical vision. 

The first of the three lectures will 
be given by the Rev. H. Martin 
Rumscheidt, professor of historical 
theology at the Atlantic School of 
Theology in Halifax, Nova Scotia. 
Professor Rumscheidt has written 
several books on the theology of 
Karl Barth. The second lecture will 
be given by Sheila Briggs, who 
teaches in the School of Religion at 
the University of Southern Califor- 
nia. The third lecturer will be the 
Rev. David Allan Scott, professor of 
theology and ethics at the Virginia 
Theological Seminary, who also 
teaches the theology of Karl Barth.

Honors the 
Vice President 

No bands were playing, no ranks of flags 
flying or crowds cheering, but Vice Presi- 
dent George Bush seemed fairly to revel in 
the pageantry of Founders' Day Convocation 
October 6. 

In his address, the Vice President congrat- 
ulated the University on its successful $50- 
million campaign victory. He dutifully com- 
mented upon tradition and heritage. He re- 
marked about demonstrators outside. Yet he 
also provided substance with a discourse on 
religious activism. 

The more than fifty newspaper, television, 
and radio reporters leaped eagerly upon the 
statement of his major premise: "There is in 
our country — and must always remain — a 
solid wall between church and state, but 
there has never been and should never be a 
wall between church ... or synagogue . . . 
and politics." 

The Vice President received an honorary 
degree (doctor of civil law), along with Sir 
Richard Southern of Oxford and Lewis 
Simpson of the Southern Review. He partici- 
pated in a reception in Convocation Hall, 
and he had lunch with fifty other guests at 
Fulford. The events were much like the 
events on any Sewanee Founders' Day — col- 
orful and grand. □ 

A Day of 

The University was charged with energy and 
filled with rumors (could we survive without 
them) in the days before the visit of Vice 
President George Bush. There prevailed a 
giddy curiosity, a mixture of pride and 

The University was determined that, if re- 
motely possible, the Vice President would 
come on Founders' Day, that sumptuous 
"movable feast." At first Mr. Bush was to 
arrive on October 7, but schedule conflicts 

required a change to October 20. 

Soon afterward the 20th became 
impossible, and October 27 was considered 
and finally Sunday, October 6. With each 
change not only were preparations for Mr. 
Bush and Founders' Day affected, but so 
were the meeting of the University's regents 
{who were invited to Founders' Day) and 
the celebration of the Century II victory (the 
highlight being a banquet the evening before 
Founders' Day). 

Some plans could not be completed until 
Secret Service men and White House staffers 
arrived the final week. Could the University, 
for instance, have an 8 a.m. Eucharist serv- 
ice before Founders' Day or would All 
Saints' Chapel have to be sealed? Could 
there be a reception for the Vice President? 
Would there be time for him to meet the 
press? Would he walk in the traditional 
procession? . 

The 8:00 o'clock service, a thanksgiving for 
the success of Century II, was approved, but 
as soon as the congregation could be ush- 
ered away, Secret Service personnel, as- 
sisted by dogs (new material for Sewanee 
dog stories), began "clearing" the chapel. 

Secret service men (wearing hearing aids 
and talking up their sleeves) were conspicu- 
ous despite their efforts. Uniformed officers 
searched ticket-holding guests who had to 
enter the front door of the chapel through a 
detection screen. News reporters and pho- 
tographers, lugging cameras and bags, 
struggled through the same check point. 

Faculty members assembled before Walsh 
Hall for the traditional procession but were 
also searched with hand-held devices. They 
processed in front of a quadrangle that was 
clear of spectators, while the Vice President 
joined them in the chapel narthex. 

To handle an anticipated overflow crowd, 
the University arranged video taping and a 
closed-circuit hookup in Blackman Audito- 
rium. There was no need. Even All Saints' 
Chapel had its empty seats. Cameras blazed 
away at the limited photograph opportuni- 
ties, consisting mainly of the Vice Presi- 
dent's address and a few moments of 
procession. Just over 100 special guests at- 
tended a reception in Convocation Hall, and 
then Mr. Bush walked across University Av- 
enue to lunch with fifty other special guests. 
University Avenue was closed. 

He departed as he had arrived in an ar- 
mored motorcade. Directly behind the Vice 
President's black limousine was a van (win- 
dows open, doors ajar) full of serious fellows 
wearing gloves and holding (out of sight) 
weapons across their laps. Many years have 
gone since President Howard Taft accepted 
an invitation to ride in an automobile instead 
of an open wagon from the Sewanee railway 
station to the center of campus where a flag- 
drapped platform had been built. 

The Vice President's jet flew out of Arnold 
Center Air Base to Chattanooga for a news 
conference and a Republican fund-raising 
dinner. Q

Lectures on Power 

Indiana Senator Richard Lugar, chairman of 
the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, spoke 
in Guerry Hall October 14 on "The Respon- 
sibility of the United States in the World 
Community." Senator Lugar was a fellow 
Rhodes scholar and roommate of W. Brown 
Patterson, dean of the College. His lecture 
was one of a series of lectures sponsored this 
fall by the University Lectures Committee on 
the general theme of "Humanity and 
Power." Partial funding for the series came 
from the Tennessee Humanities Council, 
which is supported by the National Endow- 
ment for the Humanities. 

Wood Lecture 

The Michael Harrah Wood lecturer this year 
was Stillman Drake, emeritus professor of 
the history of science at the University of To- 
ronto. Drake's topic was "Galileo, the Phi- 
losophers, and the Theologians." This was 
the twentieth in the series memorializing a 
student of the College killed in an automo- 
bile accident in April, 1967. 

Alumni Ph.D.s 

In a report released this fall by the Great 
Lakes College Association, Sewanee was 
ranked twenty-fifth among institutions 
across the nation in the percentage of gradu- 
ates who go on to earn Ph.D.s in the hu- 
manities. The report included only Ph.D.s 
and omitted other types of doctorates. The 
report was based on a comparison of the 
number of bachelor's degree recipients who 
earned Ph.D.s between 1951 and 1980 with 
the total number of bachelor's degrees 
awarded between 1946 and 1976 at each of 
1,500 institutions. 

Oxford Visitor 

Sir Richard William Southern spent a week 
in Sewanee before receiving a D.Litt degree 
at Founders' Day Convocation. He delivered 
three public lectures, which dealt with Medi- 
eval history. Sir Richard is the recently re- 
tired president of St. John's College, 

Mediaeval Colloquium 
The thirteenth annual Sewanee Mediaeval 
Colloquium will be held April 11-12 on cam- 
pus.with the theme, "Women in Mediaeval 
Society." This year's guest lecturer will be 
Georges Duby from the College de France. 
This year's conference will include partici- 
pants from across the nation and Europe. 

Conference on Women 

Preparations and planning are underway for 
the thirteenth Sewanee Conference on 
Women scheduled for February 13-20, 1986. 
This year's theme is "Positively Profes- 
sional." The conference has invited profes- 
sionals from around the nation to 
participate. Persons seeking more informa- 
tion about this year's Sewanee Conference 
on Women may call (615) 598-1419. D 

Named for 

A grant of $750,000 has been authorized by 
the Jessie Ball duPont Religious, Charitable, 
and Educational Fund to endow the Frank 
A. Juhan Chair of Pastoral Theology at the 
School of Theology. 

The $750,000 endowed chair will enable 
the Seminary to honor a teacher of erudition 
who also possesses broad pastoral experi- 
ence. According to the Rev. Donald S. Ar- 
mentrout, acting dean at the School of 
Theology, "The Frank A. Juhan Chair of 
Pastoral Theology is a fitting tribute to our 
program as well as to the memory of Bishop 

The Rt. Rev. Frank A. Juhan served the 
Episcopal Church and Sewanee for over 
sixty years. He first came to Sewanee to 
study in 1907 and was ordained as a deacon 
in 1911 and as a priest in 1912. At the age of 
thirty-seven he was elected as the fourth 
bishop of Florida. Upon his election as dioc- 
esan bishop of Florida, he was the youngest 
member of the House of Bishops and by the 
time he retired in 1956, he had become the 
senior active diocesan bishop of the Church 
in the United States. 

He played an important part in the devel- 
opment of Sewanee as well as the Church. 
Bishop Juhan served in several positions at 
the University. He was chaplain, teacher, 
and coach at the Sewanee Military Academy, 
and became a trustee, regent, Chancellor, 

and director of development. He was serv- 
ing as athletics consultant prior to his death. 

Throughout his life, he possessed an in- 
tense desire to help young people find the 
means for an education and to direct bright, 
dedicated young men into the priesthood. Q

Returning to 

Clement Chen has a disarming modesty and 
friendliness. He speaks often in superlatives. 
His descriptions are filled with detail. To 
him life is amazing. 

And for good reason, for Clement Chen, 
Jr., C'53, can tell an amazing story about 
himself, about a narrow escape from Shang- 
hai in the wake of the Chinese Communist 
revolution in 1949, his arrival in Sewanee 
with little knowledge of English and no 
money, his rise to the peak of his profession 
(architecture), and his recent return to his 
native China to build a modem hotel that 
has become a symbol of Chinese-American 

On October 25, Mr. Chen came back to Se- 
wanee for the first time in thirty-four years. 
He returned to accept the 1985 Distin- 
guished Alumnus Award at the Homecom- 
ing banquet and delivered a moving 

"I owe so much to Sewanee, to my teach- 
ers and schoolmates here that I'll never be 
able to repay what I have received." 

Earlier as he relaxed at Rebel's Rest, Chen 
said: "I never find any of my investments to 
be as good as a good education. I'm the best 
example of what a $500 scholarship can do." 

Clement Chen was a high school student 
at St. John's University in his native Shang- 
hai when he first heard the name Sewanee. 
China was torn by revolution, and the future 
of St. John's was uncertain. With the assist- 
ance of a favorite teacher, he was put in 
touch with Ellis Tucker, brother of the 
bishop of Virginia, who suggested that 
Clement apply to Sewanee. To do so he had 
to pay a $25 admissions fee, "which was all 
the money I had in the world," he said. 

In his address, he explained: "On the 
morning of May 19, 1949, 1 received a tele- 
gram telling me that Sewanee not only had 
given me an admission but also a scholar- 
ship of $500, without which I would never 
be able to come .... 

"By that time the City of Shanghai was to- 
tally surrounded by the Red Army; three of 
four airfields had fallen to the Liberation 
Army. My mother gathered all the money 
we had at the house, totaling about $450 
(They sold their belongings to raise money), 
and she sewed them into my undershirt. I 
was lucky enough to get a ticket on the very 
last airplane that left Shanghai on the 
twenty-first of May. As I flew out, I could 
hear the loud thuds of bombardment all 
around the city. Two days later the city fell. 
From that point on, I was totally cut off from 
my family. I was on my own. By way of 
Hong Kong, I finally arrived in Sewanee in 
late August, 1949." 

He continues to marvel at the abrupt 
change that nineteen-year-old Clement Chen 
faced that summer. 

"Sewanee was the first impression I had 
of the United States. All I knew for two 
years were things about Sewanee. From 

traumatic times in China, I came to this tran- 
quil place. Sewanee was my Camelot. 

"I spoke hardly any English; so what 1 
learned here in those days, I spoke with a 
Southern accent," he laughed. 

Chen had to meet the foreign language re- 
quirement by taking French, although Eng- 
lish was his real "foreign" language 
(Chinese was not taught). 

"I remember Professor Frierson would ask 
me a question in French. I had to translate it 
from French into English and then from 
English into Chinese. Ah! At last! I knew 
what the question was all about. I formed 
my answer quickly, translated it into Eng- 
lish, and then into French. If there was so 
much as one mistake in all those transla- 
tions, I was dead!" 

"From traumatic times in 
China, I came to this tranquil 
place. Sewanee was my 

Mr. Chen recalled stories about other 
teachers — G. Cecil Woods, Robert L. Petry, 
and Charles Cheston — and mentioned oth- 
ers who befriended him. However, he found 
it necessary to leave Sewanee after two 
years. Realizing that he would not be al- 
lowed to return to China and faced with the 
cultural limitations in a career, he trans- 
ferred to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 
Troy, New York, to study architecture. 

After completing his studies, he settled in 
California, worked for several large firms, 
and established his own architectural firm in 
1959, becoming sole owner in 1963. 

Mr. Chen has received the highest honors 
in the field of architecture. He has designed 
housing developments and office buildings, 
but in more recent years he has not only de- 
signed but has developed, owned, and man- 
aged hotels and business properties in the 
United States, Guam, Hong Kong, and Sin- 
gapore. Ironically Mr. Chen is the first per- 
son outside of China to be allowed to build 

hotels inside the People's Republic, a nation 
"hungry to learn and experience Western 

Chen described the excitement he felt at 
being "on the frontier" of the new Chinese 
policy to open the country to foreign invest- 
ment and foreign travelers. 

"My proposed hotel was more or less an 
experiment of this open-door policy,, and I 
knew that there was a great deal of responsi- 
bility on my part . . .. If my project suc- 
ceeded, it would be an affirmation of the 
correctness of that policy . . .." 

His Jianguo Hotel (500 rooms, costing $22 
million) opened in Beijing in 1982, and to 
date the venture has been an unqualified 
success, declared by the Chinese govern- 
ment to be the model hotel for all of China. 

A second hotel has been built in Canton, 
and a third will be built in the city of Xian, 
the ancient capital of China. 

Mr. Chen continues to reside near San 
Francisco. He is building a new house. He 
and his wife, June, his childhood sweet- 
heart, have a daughter and son. The son, 
who holds an M.B. A. from Harvard, has en- 
tered his father's firm, Clement Chen and 
Associates. These and other blessings Chen 
said can be traced to Sewanee. 

"Without Sewanee, I would not have had 
the opportunity to receive an education in 
America, my family would not have had the 
opportunity to come here, and the Jianguo 
Hotel probably would not have been built. 
Although I know I am undeserving of your 
high honor, what you have done is so con- 
sistent with what you did. You are generous 
and kind, you are what a good Christian ed- 
ucational institution is all about. What can I 
say, other than, Sewanee, from the bottom 
of my heart, I thank you." □ 

Mr. Chen was accompanied to Sewanee by 
Kemmons Wilson, the founder and chairman of 
Holiday Inns, and Xie Shi Gang, councilor in ed- 
ucation at the Chinese Embassy in Washington. 
Mr. Chen has expressed intentions to establish a 
scholarship at Sewanee for Chinese students.

Parent Effort 

One of the most satisfying events of a busy 
fall was the gathering of parents on October 
18-20. Parents' Weekend has grown steadily 
in popularity over the past several years, A 
total of 896 parents and other family mem- 
bers registered for the weekend this year, 
making this probably the best attended such 
function since parents' weekends began at 

Those attending had an unusually full list 
of activities from which to choose. Planning 
was under the direction of a resourceful stu- 
dent committee headed by Bryan Buchanan 
'86 and Beth Girardeau '87. Among the ac- 
tivities which received the highest praise 
from our visitors were the reception spon- 
sored by the Parents' Council with music 
provided by the University Wind Ensemble 
and the concert performance of Mozart's 
"Coronation Mass" by the University Choir 
in All Saints' Chapel. Also frequently men- 
tioned were the continental breakfast with 
Vice-Chancellor and Mrs. Ayres and the "ro- 
tating sessions" giving parents an opportu- 
nity to learn more about such subjects as 
studying abroad, career planning, and per- 
sonal development in college. More often 
than anything else, parents commented fa- 
vorably on the opportunities provided to 
meet and get to know faculty members. 

Parents have a very important stake in 
what Sewanee is doing and many of them 
are playing an active role in helping the Uni- 
versity to reach its objective of providing the 
best education possible for the students who 
come here. The Parents' Council, headed by 
Pat and Dan Rather of Atlanta, with the ad- 
vice of Richard Chapman, the University 
"counsellor, has committees seeking to assist 
Sewanee in the areas of admissions, career 
services, campus life, and communications 
and events. Parents can indeed assist in all 
of these areas and in many others. Their ef- 
forts are already helping significantly to 
make Sewanee more nearly the kind of Uni- 
versity all readers of the Sewanee News would 
want it to become. Their interest and com- 
mitment provide a model for all of us in the 
larger Sewanee family.

Book Is 

by Allison C. Walker, C'87 
As anyone associated with the University of 
the South knows, Sewanee is quite a unique 
place. Although tucked away in the moun- 
tains of Tennessee, the Sewanee community 
abounds in traditions, character, and charm. 

Southerners have long been famous for 
and proud of their warm hospitality and a 
special ability to entertain. To capture these 
qualities, the Theta Kappa Phi sorority is 
compiling a Sewanee cookbook to be pub- 
lished next fail. 

The book will include recipes from faculty 
members, students, parents, and alumni. 
Also included will be sample menus from 
annual Sewanee events, such as the Phi 
Delta Theta Christmas Tea, as well as special 
recipes for food and drink from fraternities, 
sororities, and other clubs. Even illustrations 
are being gathered from the campus. The 
scheme is to have a book with a Sewanee 
character and a touch of nostalgia. 

Persons who would like to contribute reci- 
pes, artwork, and other ideas should write 
to Virginia Stuart White, cookbook chair- 
man, SPO 1007, Sewanee, Tennessee 37375.

An Eventful 

by the Rev. Donald S. Armentrout 
The School of Theology opened its academic 
year on September, 10, 1985. We have an 
M.Div. student body of seventy-seven, of 
whom twelve are women. Of these seventy- 
seven, twenty are from outside the owning 
dioceses. We have twenty-nine students in 
the senior class, twenty-six in the middler 
class, and twenty in the junior class. There 
are two full-time non-degree-seeking 

The faculty has been greatly strengthened 
by four excellent appointments. Dr. Philip 
Culbertson is associate professor of pastoral 
theology, Dr. Joseph E. Monti is assistant 
professor of Christian ethics and moral the- 
ology, Dr. William H. Hethcock is associate 
professor of homiletics, and the Rev. Mary 
Anne Shahan is director of field education 
and pastoral concerns. These four faculty 
members combine many years of practical 
experience with strong theological 

During this academic year the School of 
Theology will search for a permanent direc- 
tor of field education, professor of Christian 
education, and a replacement for Patricia 
Killen. The third position is being redefined. 

During 1984-85, $210,514 was received in 
One Percent monies. This money will be 
used in 1985-86 for financial aid, D.Min. 
scholarships, minority student recruitment, 
and other enrichment programs at the 
School of Theology. We are grateful to the 
many donors who have demonstrated their 
confidence in us by this generous support. 

In the past the School of Theology has had 
three lecture series — DuBose, Beattie, and 
Arrington. This year the three were joined 
and called the DuBose Theological Sympos- 
ium. The topic was "The Theology of Karl 
Barth," celebrating the hundredth anniver- 
sary of Barth's birth. The symposium had 
three major lectures by three Barth scholars 
and six shorter topical papers on various as- 
pects of Barth's ecclesiastical and theological 
vision. Karl Barth's career as churchman and 
theologian spans the important formative 
years of twentieth-century theology, and the 
symposium greatly assisted us in appreciat- 
ing Barth's theological contributions. 

The Rev. Dr. John Macquarrie of Christ 
Church, Oxford, is the lecturer for the 1986 
symposium. His topic will be "Anglican 
Theological Identity in Light of the Theology 
of William Porcher DuBose." 

The advisory search committee for a new 
dean of the School of Theology met in At- 
lanta on April 9, 1985. This was primarily an 
organizational meeting. On April 30-May 2, 
1985, the committee met with the Alumni 
Council, the student body, the staff, the fac- 
ulty, and the bishops of the owning 
dioceses. These meetings were devoted to 
discussions of the profile and job expecta- 
tions for the dean of the School of Theology. 

Applications were discussed at the October 
8-9, 1985, meeting of the committee. The 
next meeting was scheduled for December 3. 

The chapel advisory committee has met 
twice this academic year and has developed 
a document to guide us in the construction 
of a new chapel. 

The Alumni Council met on October 14-15 
and generated many helpful ideas. The new 
president of the council is the Rev. Martin 
Tilson and the new vice-president is the 
Rev. Charles D. Cooper. 

Three fellows-in-residence were at the 
School of Theology in late October and early 
November. They were Mrs. Ronald French 
of New Orleans, the Rev. Babcock Fitch of 
Memphis, and the Rev. Lane Denson of 

On March 7-9, 1986, the School of Theol- 
ogy will have a Conference on Ministry. The 
purpose of the conference is to reflect theo- 
logically on the practice of ministry today 
and to help persons make intentional deci- 
sions about their own ministries. Among the 
topics to be discussed are the ministry of the 
priesthood, the ministry of the laity, women 
in ministry, urban ministry, ministry with 
minorities, a theology of vocation, the minis- 
try and political involvement, priestly forma- 
tion, the minister as educator, the ministry 
of the diaconate and chaplaincies. This 
promises to be a significant conference. □ 

Alumni Council 

by the Rev. W. Robert Abstein, T'65 

The Alumni Council met for a day and a 
half at Hamilton Hall, the new quarters for 
the School of Theology in mid-October. The 
acting dean, Professor Don Armentrout, 
brought us up to date on faculty changes 
and projected future needs in this area. We 
were encouraged to hear about the high mo- 
rale among faculty, staff, and students dur- 
ing this year of the search for a new dean. 
We expressed concern over the small junior 
class (twenty members) and would want to 
encourage all alumni who are in positions of 
leadership in their dioceses to encourage 
prospective students to consider Sewanee 
for their seminary experience. 

We heard reports from our development 
officer, Bill Whipple, regarding the One Per- 
cent program. This is making a significant 
impact at the School of Theology. All of that 
money is going to supplement the regular 
budget. Acting Dean Armentrout outlined 
some of the ways this is being used. The 
largest item is student scholarships. Other 
areas are faculty and curricula enhancement, 
special programs, and other non-budgetary 
projects. If you are interested in specifics, 
these may be obtained from the dean's 

The Rev. Mr. Richard Kew from SPCK 
spoke about the exciting program for getting 
literature, especially prayer books, into 
Third World countries where the cost to an 
individual is too great for the average per- 
son. We commended this fine program. 

New officers for the Alumni Council: pres- 
ident — The Rev. Martin R. Tilson, St. Luke's 
Birmingham; vice-president — The Rev. 
Charles D. "Pete" Cooper, St. David's, 
Cheraw, South Carolina. 

We recommended the appointment of the 
Rev. Hendree Harrison, St. David's, Ro- 
swell, Georgia, to Mr. Robert Ayres to serve 
as the Alumni Council representative on the 
search committee for the dean. 

Resolutions of support were passed for 
Professor Don Armentrout in his role as act- 
ing dean and for Mr. Tom Watson, adminis- 
trative assistant to the dean, for his fine 
work in the area of the EFM program. 

We will be soliciting contributions for a 
memorial in thanksgiving for all the deans of 
the School of Theology. 

We are soliciting nominations (see article 
on page 11) for filling the positions of retir- 
ing members of the council: The Rt. Rev. 
Leopold Frade, the Rev. Harry W. Crandall, 
Sister Lucy Shetters, and the Rev. Dr. W. 
Robert Abstein. 

My personal thanks to all who have 
served so faithfully the School of Theology 
on the council and the alumni who have 
generously given their financial support. 
This has been a great experience for me to 
serve as your president. I leave the council 
with good leadership and many willing 
hands on board. The future looks bright in- 
deed for our work together as alumni of the 
School of Theology at Sewanee. G 


The Sewanee women's field hockey team 
finished with a flurry of wins, capturing 
nine of its last ten games, to raise its overall 
record to 11-4-2 and to win the Women's In- 
tercollegiate Athletic conference champion- 
ship for the second consecutive time, 

The women beat Asbury 5-0 in the first 
game of the conference tournament and 
came back to defeat Berea 2-1 in the finals to 
win the title. Jennifer Cook, C'86, Danielle 
Cothie, C'88, Becky Hopkins, C'88, and Em- 
ily Robinson, C'89, were named to the all- 
conference team. 
Men's Soccer 

By winning four of the last six games, the 
Tiger soccer team finished the year as co- 
champions of the College Athletic Confer- 
ence with a record of 3-1 and an overall re- 
cord of 10-6-1. The Tigers only conference 
loss came to co-champion Earlham. 

This season, Sewanee striker Sean Gibson, 
C'89, set a new school record for individual 
goals scored in a single season. He scored 
twenty goals, breaking the previous record 
of nineteen set by Eddie McKeithen, C'84. 

Women's Cross Country 
The women's cross country team finished a 
successful season by winning the Women's 
Intercollegiate Athletic Conference champi- 
onship and placing four members of the 
squad on the all-conference team. 

Virginia Brown, C'87, Missey Parmley, 
C'89, Kai McCrossen, C'86, and Elizabeth 
Klots, C'88, were all named to the WIAC all- 
conference team. In the WIAC meet, Vir- 
ginia Brown was the individual champion in 
the meet, with teammate Missey Parmley 
coming in a close second. 

At the NCAA regional meet, the women 
placed fifth among thirteen teams. 

Men's Cross Country 
The men's cross country team ended its sea- 
son in third place in the College Athletic 
Conference and had two Tiger harriers 
named to the All-CAC team. 

Paul Pfefferkorn, C'87, finished the CAC 
meet in second place and Grady Paddock, 
C'89, finished the race in tenth to place both 
of them on the All-CAC team. 

In the eleven meets that the Tigers ran, 
the lowest team finish of the year was a fifth 
place in the Berrv Invitational which in- 
cluded a host of NCAA Division I and I-AA 
teams along with the Division III teams. 


The women's volleyball team Nnished its 
season in fourth place at the Women's Inter- 
collegiate Athletic Conference 

However, Sewanee was the only team to

Sewanee took back the Southeastern Inter- 
collegiate Canoe Championships October 5 
on North Carolina's Catawba River. 

The canoe team edged last-year's cham- 
pion, Western Carolina University, 371 to

During the season the Tigers defeated 
Samiord, Earlham, Maryville, and Rose-Hul- 
man but lost to Millsaps, Centre, Rhodes, 
Washington and Lee, and Hampden- 
Sydney. □ 

New Coach 

Bill Fenlon has been named the new head 
men's basketball coach following the resig- 
nation of Bobby Dwyer. Fenlon had served 
as Dwyer's assistant for the past two years. 

Dwyer accepted a position as an assistant 
athletic director for development at William 
and Mary in mid-September. 

Fenlon's coaching career began only five 
years ago in Tampa, Florida, as a full-time 
teacher, basketball coach, and athletic direc- 
tor at a private junior high school. The next 
year he coached Tampa Prep to a school re- 
cord for victories and the first non-losing 
season in its history. A year later, he di- 
rected Tampa Berkley to a 22-7 mark that in- 
cluded conference, district, and regional 
championships. The summer in between, he 
organized a 17-and-under Amateur Athletic 
Union team of all stars and served as an as- 
sistant coach on the 19-and-under unit that 
won the AAU National Championship and 
defeated the Soviet Union national team. 

Fenlon began his own basketball playing 
career as a Georgia all-state point guard from 
Atlanta's Marist High School. He then let- 
tered three years at Northwestern 

Fenlon's new assistant is Mike Shirley of 
Tampa. Shirley brings with him six years of 
coaching experience including a stint as an 
assistant at the University of South Florida. Q 

Cagers Will Run 

This year's men's basketball team will run 
more and press, according to new head 
coach Bill Fenlon. 

Fenlon admitted that the success of the 
team will depend some on how well they 
adjust from the loss of Sewanee's second all- 
time career scorer, Jim Startz. 

"He (Startz) represented about a third of 
our offense last year," Fenlon said. 

The loss of Startz is the bad news, but the 
good news is that the Tigers will be return- 
ing the other four starters from last year's 
third-place conference squad. 

Women's Basketball 
All-American Kim Valek, C'87, and all-con- 
ference player Susy Steele, C'86, will lead 
the women's basketball team this season as 
they try to improve on last year's 13-7 record 
and fifth-place conference finish. 

This year's squad will return four starters 
and have six promising freshmen. Said 
Coach Nancy Ladd, "We are going to imple- 
ment a faster and more exciting style of 

Swimming Team 

Having lost only three swimmers from last 
year's undefeated team, Coach Cliff Afton is 
optimistic about the chances of repeating 
that feat this year. 

"Another undefeated season is not impos- 
sible, especially with the depth that we will 
have this year," Afton said. "We lost some 
key people (men's captain, Kyle Bennett, 
and women's captain, Beth Garcia) from last 
year's squad, but have added twelve fresh- 
men and transfers who will give us depth 
this season," he said. 


Seniors Armando Basarrate, Brian Masters, 
and David Lee will lead a Tiger wrestling 
team that Coach Yogi Anderson believes will 
be a good team with experience and youth. 

According to Anderson, "Our schedule 
will give our wrestlers the opportunity to 
compete against some of the best Division III 
teams in the country." The schedule in- 
cludes the Washington and Lee Tournament 
and a home quadrangular match against 
Rose-Hulman, Washington University, and 
Georgia Tech. Q 

A Gathering 
of Old Tigers 

About 1,000 alumni gathered for Homecom- 
ing October 25-26, one of the few celebra- 
tions in recent years free of rain. 

A record number of alumni (800) regis- 
tered for events that were stacked on top of 
other events throughout a gorgeous 

The alumni reception and buffet dinner 
Friday night in honor of the Distinguished 
Alumnus, Clement Chen, launched the 
weekend. The annual alumni dance went on 
to midnight. 

The annual meeting of the Associated 
Alumni began at 10 a.m. Saturday in Convo- 
cation Hall. The meeting was followed by an 
addition to Homecoming — the Alumni 
Forum. The first part included discussions of 
both the legal and social considerations of al- 
cohol use and abuse on campus. The second 
part was a discussion of admissions office re- 
cruiting and alumni legacies. 

By the end of the forum, fraternity recep- 

tions were well under way, and lines had 
started forming for lunch under the large 
tent on the lawn of the Bishop's Common. 
Even before these events visitors could get 
the heart pumping with the annual "Fun 
Run" and the alumni soccer game (alumni 
against the varsity). 

The alumni parade began as lunch was 
ending and was marked, as in the past 
years, by class sections. But this year the 
Franklin County High School Marching 
Band led the way. Antique cars, an assort- 
ment of floats, and then waves of alumni 
swept across campus from the Bishop's 
Common to McGee Field. 

Students collected tickets and sold pro- 
grams, pompoms, and hats. Some even sold 
raffle tickets to raise money for such projects 
as the basketball team's trip to Hawaii (to 
play basketball). 

Homecoming has easily outgrown Harris 
Stadium, especially since the fence was 
moved back to accommodate the new track. 
The social mixer had to move off the bank

The Mobile (Alabama) Sewanee Club is the 
1985 Club of the Year and was awarded the 
Dobbins Cup during the annual meeting Oc- 
tober 26 (Homecoming Saturday) of the As- 
sociated Alumni. 

Mobile edged out Atlanta and Birming- 
ham largely because of the continuation of 
its long-range plan and its work in making 
and publicizing Sewanee Awards. The 
Nashville Sewanee Club came in a strong 
fourth, while Chicago took fifth. 

Between other presentations at the annual 
meeting, members heard reports from 
alumni officers as well as from Vice-Chancel- 
lor Ayres, C49. 

Jesse L. "Sam" Carroll, C'69, pointed out 
that the percentage of alumni making gifts 
had fallen during the previous fiscal year al- 
though the number of dollars had increased. 
He attributed the fall in part to the absence 
of the challenge gift of Gerald DeBIois, C'63. 

He said 22 percent of University alumni 
made gifts in the 1984-85 fiscal year, a de- 
crease from 27.5 percent the previous year. 
For the College the decrease was from 35 
percent to 28 percent. For the School of The- 
ology the decrease was from 20 to 16 

The excellent reports on College admis- 
sions were reiterated. A record number of 
applications (1,058) led to a record number 
of entering freshmen (340). This is also one 
of the brightest classes to enroll in the past 
twenty-two years. The average SAT score is 
1150, a 42 point increase over the previous 

Sam Carroll said the next year could be 
better if alumni will lend their support by re- 
ferring students to Sewanee, helping with 
college nights, or being hosts for admissions 
gatherings in their homes. Alumni inter- 
ested in helping may notify Ed Wilkes, the 
director of admissions.

Lee Glenn, C'57, chairman of the Alumni 
Fund, introduced a plan to honor consistent 
donors — those who have made gifts to the 
University for twenty-five years or more. He 
said planning is still going on to find an ap- 
propriate way to recognize consistent donors 
and to find good criteria for recognition. Mr. 
Glenn said that the most appropriate way to 
recognize these persons may be to place 
bronze plaques within the cloisters of Walsh- 
Ellett Hall. He invited and encouraged inter- 
ested persons to communicate to him their 

Also during the meeting, Walter Bryant, 
C'49, was presented with a certificate in rec- 
ognition of his long years of service to the 
University as director of athletics, director of 
the Alumni Fund, and secretary of the Asso- 
ciated Alumni. 

The Golden Rim Award, for the alumnus 
who traveled the farthest to the meeting, 
was presented to Brad Whitney, C70, of 
Portland, Oregon. Q 


Have you received and answered the re- 
quest for information for the new alumni di- 
rectory? Time is short. 

The new directory is scheduled to be pub-

company is the sole authorized agent for the 
production and marketing of the directory 
and assumes all financial obligation, includ- 
ing the compilation, editing, bill, and distri- 
bution of the volume and will cover its costs 
through individual book sales to alumni 
only. This plan will assure the publication of 
a professionally compiled volume. 

During the next several months, alumni 
will be contacted by telephone for verifica- 
tion of the information to be printed in the 
directory. At that time, and at that time

In a corner of Beeler Brush's office is a box of 
white and purple cups behind another box 
of funny reunion hats and a framed Sewa- 
nee poster dubbed "the fog." More photo- 
graphs and prints cover the walls, and 
Sewanee memorabilia is scattered about — 
books and banners and the Golden Rim un- 
der a table covered with class pictures. 
It is the den of a feverish and fanatic 
mind. But not for long. Mr. Brush was re-

At the annual meeting of the Associated 
Alumni at Homecoming, Beeler was saluted 
for the energy and innovation he brought to 
Sewanee in 1979. The membership had rea- 
son to be thankful. Brush has added new 
color to Homecoming, with the annual 
dance, parade, and lunch under the "big 
top" to touch only the highlights. He has 
been a key factor in increasing communica- 
tion with alumni everywhere. He has in- 
creased consciousness of class among 
graduating seniors by organizing meetings 
on what it means to be an alumnus. 

Money wasn't his goal. He traveled to at 
least a dozen cities to help organize or reju- 
venate Sewanee Clubs. He helped alumni 
make contacts on and off the Mountain and 
did his best to make it easy for people to 
help the University of the South. Even a few 
gimmicks were not beneath him. He pro- 
moted the production of a slew of Sewanee 
items that alumni could purchase or acquire 
with a gift to the University. The Sewanee 
book of photographs is one example.

Persistence won out for the Sewanee Club of 
Mobile, which took the Dobbins Cup this 
year after some near misses. 

The meticulous point system used by the 
Alumni Office gave Mobile the lead in both 
"organization" (mainly because of the con- 
tinuation of a long-range plan) and "Sewa- 
nee Awards" (with extra credit for good 

Revived about ten years ago and a Dob- 
bins contender for seven, Mobile also has a 
conscientious career development program 
or network to assist alumni new to Mobile to 
make social and career contacts. The club 
plans events each quarter, including a more 
formal gathering to which a University guest 
is invited. 

In June the club held its summer party at 
the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Inge, Jr., on 
Mobile Bay. Afternoon activities included 
sailing and sunning followed by supper on 
the wharf. New officers were elected at the 
annual business meeting August 21 at the 
Athelstan Club. A social hour followed. In 
September the club also challenged and de- 
feated handily in softball a University of Vir- 
ginia alumni team. (Some reports say the 
game ended in an "ignominious rout.") 

Among the active corps of leaders and 
workers are Amy (St. John) Hamilton, C'78, 
immediate past president, who gets a special 
salute for the Dobbins victory; John Peebles, 
C73, the current president; Joel Daves, C73, 
another past president, Peter Sherman, 
treasurer and vice-president in charge of ca- 
reer development; Erling Riis, C'81, vice- 
president; and Joy (Ogburn) Gardner, C'82. 


Elections of officers for the 1985-86 year were 
held September 26 at the Brandy House Tav- 
ern. Approximately thirty to forty club mem- 
bers were present to discuss next years 
activities, and the club is proud to announce 
the election of its first woman president. 

Officers for the year are: Lisa (Mc- 
Donough) Howick, C'81, president; Jay 
Fisher, C'79, vice-president of social affairs; 
Kathryn Wilson, C82, vice-president in 
charge of Sewanee Awards and alumni af- 

fairs; Elliott Street, C'66, secretary; and Craig 
Laine, C'78, treasurer. 

The club considers that one of its major 
goals for the coming year is to establish a 
better program to assist local alumni in ca- 
reer placement. 

The Founders' Day Dinner was held No- 
vember 7 in the Zodiac Room at Neiman 
Marcus. Club members were delighted that 
Drs. Joseph and Mary Cushman were the 
guest speakers from the Mountain.

To The Editor 

Taking pen in hand, I feel that a reply to 
Scott Bates's letter concerning the "catalytic" 
Charles Harrison is warranted. I had the 
pleasure of being a student in several of his 
classes, and therefore benefited from his su- 
perb teaching skills. Could this be the same 
man described in Scott Bates's letter? The 
Dr. Harrison I knew made Chaucer flow 
trippingly off the tongue, and made the 
characters depicted therein as familiar and 
understandable as close kin. He made the 
Elizabethan Settlement a small and recogniz- 
able community just down the road apiece. 
He never spoke of Norman Thomas, but 
rather the Norman Conquest. He never 
spoke of Myles Horton, but he did admit he 
admired Miles Davis, and all that jazz. The 

movement he championed was the promo- 
tion of academic excellence, he inspired all 
of us to participate, and the chapter com- 
posed the whole of the student body. He 
knew Willie Six, Isaac, Dan, and others and 
had more to do with desegregation than any 
law. He knew that faculty simply operated 
on the perimeter of the student body, and 
not within it. He knew that the faculty's 
knowledge and expertise had to be exposed 
and taught, and the student body could ac- 
cept, or reject. However, he was one of the 
few who was absorbed "into" the body, and 
became one with us. 

I believe it is a total miscarriage of poetic 
license to quote an "intimate conversation" 
with someone who is no longer present to 
defend, or affirm, the statements. I could tell 
you that I had a private conversation with 
Senor Lewis, and he was a "proud" follower 
of Earl Browder — but he wasn't and I didn't. 
I could tell you that I had a private conversa- 
tion with Abbot Cotten Martin, and that he 
"proudly" followed the teachings of Karl 
Marx — but that, too, would be suspect. 

Dr. Guerry, Henry Gass, Abbo, Tudor 
Seymour Long, Charles Harrison — there's 
no need for demythology here. They became 
part of us, because of what was known, not 
because of the lack of what was known. 
Charles Harrison, a closet conspirator, it 
won't wash, Scott Bates — even in the Sewa- 
nee Steam Laundry. 

Robert F. Cherry, A'44, C'50, T'51 
Franklin, Tennessee 

Charles Harrison was certainly not a closet 
conspirator; his progressive opinions were 
always out in the open for everyone to hear, 
as generations of students and faculty mem- 
bers who chose to talk politics with him 
knew well. These opinions, which included 
a frank admiration for Norman Thomas, 
Myles Horton, and Martin Luther King, Jr., 
were so well known, indeed, that there were 
outside pressures on the administration in 
the 1950s to get rid of Charles and other Se- 
wanee professors because of their strong 
stands in support of civil rights and against 
the Vietnam War. Fortunately, Sewanee is a 
true University that is open to all important 
ideas for discussion and debate.

Titanic Memory 

The discovery of the wreckage of the luxury liner Titanic last Septem- 
ber raised the memory of an illustrious Sewanee alumnus who was one 
of the 1,513 victims of the 1912 disaster. Maj. Archibald W. Butt, who 
attended Sewanee from 1882 to 1886, fought in the Spanish-American 
War and later became a military aide to Presidents Theodore Roosevelt 
and William Howard Taft. A brief article recalling Butt and the Titanic 
was published in the Nashville Banner for which Butt had served as a 
Washington correspondent. In accounts of the disaster from survivors, 
Butt was given credit for saving the lives of many women and children-,

Tabasco Formula 

Royal Designs 

Thomas Campbell, C'66, was received at Buckingham Palace in May by 
the Queen's Private Secretary who accepted on behalf of Her Majesty 
and the Princess of Wales a silk scarf, which Campbell designed to 
honor Queen Mother Elizabeth on her eighty-fifth birthday. The scarf, 
which shows the Elizabeth of Glamis Rose, has raised over 1,000 
pounds sterling to aid the National Trusts of England and Scotland and 
is also on sale in the U. S. Campbell serves as the commissioner of the 
Scottish Clan Campbell in New York City and continues his work in 
religious vestments for a variety of churches. He executed the New 
University Chancellor's Mantel (being worn by Bishop Stough on the 
cover of the June issue of the Sewanee News), which was the gift of the 
Rev. William McKeachie, C'66, and employed heraldic designs by J. 
Waring McCrady, C'59. 

The year that Sewanee's first nine students began classes (1868), Ed- 
mund Mcllhenny began making Tabasco sauce in Louisiana, and today 
his grandson, Paul Mcllhenny, C'68, (note the class year) continues the 
business that produces 180,000, two-ounce bottles of sauce daily. The 
Tabasco story was told in a September issue of USA Weekend. Here are 
some interesting excerpts: Tabasco (both the name and bottle are trade- 
marks) comes from Avery Island, about 160 miles west of New Orle- 
ans. The sauce is a secret blend of vinegar, salt, and peppers, which 
are picked by hand, crushed, fermented, and aged two to three years 
in white oak barrels. 

Says Paul Mcllhenny: "My grandfather decided to put it in men's 
cologne bottles with a narrow neck because the sauce was so strong 
you needed to sprinkle, not pour, it on." Tabasco lasts indefinitely 
without refrigeration (bacteria would not dare touch it), but it fades to 
brown. "When someone complains to me that their Tabasco turned 
brown, I just say they must not be using it up fast enough," said 

where he has his law practice which focuses 
on criminal defense. Lawrence Dimmitt III,

Shakespeare's Insistent Theme: Essays Literary and Various by Charles Harris 
(University of the South, 1985. xvi 192 pages. $10.95) 

Shakespeare's Insistent Theme: Essays Literary and Various, by Charles Har- 
rison, now published by the University of the South, was being edited 
before his death at Sewanee on January 25. This volume remarkably 
preserves the sharp flavor of Dr. Harrison's teaching and conversation; 
it is a handsome memorial to the man who taught English at Sewanee 
from 1947 to 1973 and served as dean of the college and chairman of 
the English department. Anyone who wishes to recall undergraduate 
memories of him or who is curious about a man so controversial in 
recent Sewanee history, will wish to get hold of this book. Although 
prepared by Dr. Harrison's friends and pupils in the right spirit of filial 
piety, the volume serves a wider audience as the record of a lifetime's 
meditation on Shakespeare's plays and contemporary intellectual con- 
fusion, what he called "tyrannical pluralism and tyrannical monism." 

The twenty-three essays collected in this volume also range over 
such topics as music, English grammar and usage, gardening, and the 
philosophy of George Santayana; Harrison's style, concise and "felici- 
tous" (his term of praise for other stylists), and his ethical preoccupa- 
tions give the volume a remarkable unity, although the essays date 
from 1939 to 1973. He was very much of a "character" not only in the 
sense of a colorful figure but also in the sense of a person whose inner 
life was complicated and deep but also remarkably crystallized into ac- 
tion and utterance. 

The title of the volume is taken from a Phi Beta Kappa lecture Harri- 
son gave at the University of Richmond in 1973, which the editor Don 
Keck DuPree has chosen wisely to put as the first essay in the volume: 
it is the last and perhaps most impressive of Harrison's statements 
about what Shakespeare actually thinks about ethics and politics. The 
title, although Harrison's own, is slightly tepid to my taste; it has about 
it a note of Victorian high-mindedness which Harrison was legitimately 
heir to. Nevertheless, it gives the wrong impression of the man. 

A more apt title might have been Not Knuckling Under to Agamemnon, 
although it would hardly have done justice to Harrison's suavity. Har- 
rison was resolutely opposed to any reading of Shakespeare's plays 
which would present Ulysses's speech on degree from Troilus and Cres- 
sida as Shakespeare's own political manifesto. He seems to have under- 
stood Ulysses as saying to the commander-in-chief Agamemnon that 
rulers should be obeyed even when they have lost moral vision and 
that moral vision is dispensable in a leader. Harrison thought Shake- 
speare's Ulysses is the prototype of all modern careerists and that 
Shakespeare intends us to believe on the contrary that any separation 
of authority and moral ends is unjust and humanly insupportable. 

"Whatever hierarchy of authority and obedience may subsist in a 

n, edited by Don Keck DuPree 

society," Harrison writes, "differences of rank and office should be sec- 
ondary to the primary community of the human." The theme that runs 
through all of these essays is the existence of a common human nature 
perceivable by all men and women of good will through the exercise of 
their common sense. It was out of such convictions that he defended 
protest against racial segregation and against the Vietnam War. It also 
led him to take a somewhat dim view of feminism and other ideologies 
to the extent that they depreciate rational discourse and tend to deny 
the common humanity of men and women. 

As his essay on Santayana in this volume shows, Harrison had a 
highly developed philosophical training in addition to his wide literary 
reading; and he understood that his commitment to common humanity 
and common sense presented him with a complex set of philosophical 
problems. In the 1950's, he was more willing than he later became to 
place himself within the tradition of what was then often called Chris- 
tian humanism but which in the Santayana essay he calls "Aristotelian 

Harrison's opposition to anti-intellectual authoritarianism in politics 
made him suspicious of claims to authority within Christian tradition. 
We find him protesting in a commencement address at General Theo- 
logical Seminary in 1955 against the "strangely allied forces of un- 
christian humanism and Christian inhumanism." A Christianity which 
did not seek harmony with the ethics of Plato and Aristotle is not for 
him, nor is a secular skepticism which does not acknowledge the real- 
ity of love throughout. ("Skeptical" is usually an honorific term for 
him, however — in almost any context.) Harrison resists as nonsensical 
the separation of reason, grace, and charity. Although suspicious of 
the tendency of theology to resort to appeals to authority, he has kind 
words for the great sixteenth-century Anglican divine Richard Hooker 
and the twentieth-century Thomist Etienne Gilson. As for Luther, 
"Shakespeare knew more than Luther." 

The volume has been meticulously edited by Mr. DuPree, a poet and 
a former student of Harrison. He has chosen to mix the essays by sub- 
ject so that the reader encounters an essay on music criticism after an 
essay on Shakespeare. This arrangement will probably be more attrac- 
tive to a reader trying to get an impression of the interconnections be- 
tween Harrison's interests than to a student of Shakespeare or of 
music. Also of interest are a foreword by Andrew Lytle and an after- 
word by William H. Ralston, Jr. Rosemary Paschall designed the attrac- 
tive cover.

That Reminds Me, a memoir, Girault Mc- 
Arthur Jones, $10.00, The University of the 

This little volume contains a gentle, moving 
record of the boyhood, schooling, and voca- 
tion of a Mississippi priest who later became 
Bishop of Louisiana. Two words come re- 
peatedly to your reviewer as I read this 
straightforward record of now eighty-year- 
old, retired Girault McArthur Jones: "disci- 
plined" and "accepting." 

Raised on an isolated south Mississippi 
homeplace by a country-lawyer father, Gi- 
rault, bom in 1904 to Elizabeth and Acldand 
Jones, was the first of the nine Jones boys. 
The daily routines in" this home reflect the 
simplicity basic to rural Southern life in this 
century's beginning. Their home was spa- 
cious, but without electricity, plumbing, or 
heat beyond grate fireplaces. Respect for the 
scholarly father and tremendous admiration 
for his skillfully organized wife grows as one 
reads of the cooking, managing, sewing — 
everything but shoes, stockings, and hats for 
all— not to mention the overseeing of farm 
animals even to hog-killing time in the fall. 
As the family grew, cooperation and sharing 
were necessary for happy existence. Each 
boy had his duties, but their combined imag- 
inative play made up the fun of childhood. 
Girault, reaching high school age, found 
after-school work to build his savings ac- 
count. Then at sixteen, he and his father set 
off for Virginia and Staunton Military 

What a shock barracks living, discipline, 
and studies must have been for Cadet Jones, 
five feet tall, a light hundred pounds, hardly 
able to carry the parade rifle! Two important 
things happened, however; Girault learned 
to live with many other young men not fam- 
ily, and his church experiences at Old Trin- 
ity made the familiar liturgy alive and 

Next, knowing there would soon be four 
more boys ready for college, the elder Jones 
sent Girault to the State University at Ox- 
ford, then a small campus of only nine 
hundred students. Young Jones soon made 
friends, became active at the YMCA, joined 
the debating club, and in time became con- 
vinced the law was not for him. Mississippi 
Bishop Green, on his annual visit to Oxford, 
wrote layreaders licences for Girault and his 
friend Elnathan Tartt so that these two could 
read Morning Prayer, attract registered Epis- 
copalians among the students at the Univer- 
sity, and stir St. Peter's into reawakening. 
Slowly the realization that he wishedto 
study for the ministry came into focus. This 
independent decision was warmly sup- 
ported by Bishop Bratton, who had been at 
Giraulf s baptism and privately dedicated 
that babe to the ministry! Young Jones grad- 
uated and, with the earnings of several cam- 
pus jobs, was ready to pay his own way to 
Sewanee, the School of Theology where 
both Mississippi bishops Green and Bratton 
had gone. 

Girault*s arrival at Sewanee and St. Luke's 
Hall, top floor, that fall of 1925 comes 
through in this book as a happy time. Theo- 
logical faculty are frankly evaluated, their 
shortcomings as well as their charms. 
Classes over those three years were not ade- 
quate training for the church's ministry by 
themselves, but working at the mission in 
Rowark's Cove, though unsupervised, ma- 
tured the young postulant's prayer life. His 
two summers were good practice times in 
assigned vacant churches in Mississippi. 
Love for the Gospel and the Sewanee com- 
munity went with Girault as he graduated to 
face the challenge of ministry in 1928. 

Jones was ordained deacon by Bishop 
Bratton who then sent him out as a mis- 
sioner to a vast area of inland Mississippi 
never before approached by the Episcopal 
Church. He developed active, small congre- 
gations throughout four counties, discover- 
ing lost communicants in unexpected places. 

This is the moment of stark tragedy in the 
life of this young priest. All his childhood he 
had known a neighbor girl, Virginia Wallace, 
had gone to grammar school and then high 
school with her. Through college and semi- 
nary years their devotion quietly deepened. 

Now, with headquarters for this mission- 
er's assignment in Lumberton, Giraulf s in- 
come and a simple house were fairly 
assured. They were married in April 1930. 
Seven months later she died of a fast grow- 
ing brain tumor. His bishop and communi- 
cants shared his grief and sustained him 
through the bleak period of return to his for- 
mer bachelor routines. 

Meeting at Synod three years later, Girault 

was attracted to a young campus worker 
from FSCW, Kathleen Piatt. They corre- 
sponded for two years, attended confer- 
ences, and visited until 1935, when they 
were married in Jacksonville by Bishop 

Called to St. Andrew's, New Orleans in 
1936, Girault had a new experience, a city 
parish, one among several Episcopal par- 
ishes, but this one with a good sized congre- 
gation of devoted parishioners and close to 
Tulane campus. His work among students 
went on for mafw years as did Work at the 
Children's Home. Bishop John L. Jackson 
called upon the rector of St. Andrew's to 
survey the field of church school materials; 
eventually, he would serve on a national 
committee producing the first church teach- 
ing series. 

Great things were happening to the 
Jones's household privately; in 1937 Virginia 
was born and named for Girault's first wife. 
The Jones's second daughter, Elizabeth, ar- 
rived early the year war began in Europe 
and the Pacific. The rector of St. Andrew's 
ministered to many uniformed young people 
while comforting and strengthening parents 
who waited and prayed. In 1948 Bishop 
Jackson turned his standing committee over 
to Girault to direct while he went to Sewa- 
nee and then to Lambeth. Here the Bishop 
had a serious heart attack, was returned to 
Virginia, but there died. Incredible duties 
that had been only temporary now increased 
for Girault — diocesan needs on top of paro- 
chial parish needs. At a special election in 
November that year, Girault was elected by 
the clergy on the first ballot, by laymen on 
the second, a clear call to service in the high- 
est of the Church's offices. 

The new Bishop of Louisiana quickly set 
about the task — a statewide bulletin was in- 
augurated and a diocesan camp started; then 
the laymen were organized during the first 
three years of Bishop Jones's term. He was 
joined in the guidance of the diocese by the 
election of Iveson Noland as suffragan 

Bishop Jones continued to lead his dio- 
cese, attend National Church Conventions, 
Lambeth Conference meetings, and regents 
and trustees meetings at Sewanee. Though 
he officially retired from his diocese at 65 
years of age in 1969, he served out the term 
as Chancellor of Sewanee, 1967-73. Retire- 
ment to his Sewanee residence lasted twelve 
years until the death of Dean Holmes in 1981, 
when a call came once again for official serv- 
ice. Bishop Jones became interim dean for 
one year, earning the fervent gratitude of 
the administration and the seminary family, 

The facts here summarized are published 
with a few photographs of the important 
characters mentioned, but each page of the 
text is interspersed with italicized humorous 
remembered events concerning the parish or 
person being discussed. This charmingly 
lightens the recital of an overwhelmingly 
crowded life in God's service of Bishop
